What is Friday Night Done Right?
"Friday Night Done Right" (FNDR) is a campaign that was adopted from Drug Free Charlotte, in South Florida. Launched in Citrus County in 2015, FNDR empowers teens through positive alternatives by giving students in Middle School and High School the ability to make important choices about how they spend not only their Friday nights, but other time as well. It allows teens who are already spending their Friday nights without alcohol and drugs to know that it is normal, and also allows teens who have been involved those activities to realize they don’t need that to have a good time.
The Friday Night Done Right campaign in Citrus County provides events that are held at various locations, and is supported by a number of agencies called the “Street Team” which includes the Anti-Drug Coalition, Eckerd “Hi-Five” Kids, Tobacco Free Florida, the Citrus County Sheriff’s Office, Citrus County Schools, Aspire Relationship Center-Home of the River Project, Filter Youth Development, the Citrus Memorial Health Foundation YMCA, the Boys and Girls Clubs of Citrus County, University of Florida IFAS, Citrus Abuse Shelter Association, Hanley Center Foundation, and The Centers.
On August 5th, we kicked off the new school year with an End of Summer Bash that was held at the YMCA and around 200 students attended!
