The Friday Night Live (FNL) program is designed to build leadership skills, provide opportunities for community service, and prevent alcohol, tobacco and drug use among teenagers.  Grant Union High School (GUHS) has a very active FNL chapter.  Chapter activities are designed to encourage positive peer influence and provide opportunities for leadership and community service.  The photos from this GUHS event illustrate the creative and fun way student members get their anti-tobacco messages out to other students and the public for "Kick Butts Day", March 15, 2017.   Kick Butts Day is a day of activism that empowers youth to stand out, speak up and seize control against Big Tobacco at more than 1,000 events planned by independent organizers across the United States and around the world.
