1. Friday Night Live

The California Friday Night Live (FNL) Program was developed in 1984. It began as a pilot program dedicated to reducing the number of deaths and injuries caused by teen motorists driving under the influence of alcohol and other drugs. During the first years of the program the youth involved were organized into high school-based student action groups. The success rate was so great that in 1988 a statewide office was established. By 1990, the number of counties with the FNL Program had increased 300% and the main focus of the program began to shift from one of preventing drinking and driving among teens to promoting healthy lifestyles free of alcohol, tobacco, or other substance abuse among youth.

At Mercy High School, the FNL club is supervised by Mrs. Donna Lindeman. Officers are elected at the beginning of each year.

2. Key Club

Key Club is the oldest and largest service program for high school students. What makes Key Club so successful is the fact that it is a student-led organization that teaches leadership through serving others. Members of the Kiwanis International family, Key Club members build themselves as they build their schools and communities.
