Friday Night Live

About Friday Night Live and BOOF

Friday Night Live is a youth development program that engages young people in the leadership of community-level underage drinking prevention initiatives as well as other prevention campaigns like distracted driving and gambling. Friday Night Live is great for developing leadership skills as well as public speaking and self confidence. 

Betting on Our Future (BOOF) is a youth-driven problem gambling awareness campaign intended to empower young people to raise awareness of problem gambling and cause change in their communities. Students are responsible for scripting, coordinating, and producing live dramatic performances, video projects, and public service announcements to communicate the risks and signs of problem gambling among youth. Young people also have the opportunity to create gambling themed artwork to be used in printed publications for parents and other concerned adults to inform them of the warning signs of problem gambling and the resources available to help their families.

2017-18 BOOF Project

This is the third year that VOHS students have participated in the BOOF grant. Participating students (Friday Night Live Club and Leadership) created anti- gambling PSA's in the form of posters and videos. The money from this grant helps fund school wide activities as well as VOHS sweatshirts.
