Leaders of Tomorrow: Jose Gomez

Author: Judith M. Wilson
Nov, 2017 Issue

When Jose Gomez resurrected Novato High School’s chapter of Friday Night Live (FNL), he took on a challenge—convincing local liquor storeowners to make alcohol less attractive to teenagers. Gomez, 19, was a freshman, when he discovered FNL at a school club fair. FNL’s focus on developing leaders and encouraging healthy lifestyles, impressed him, so he joined and spent time raising awareness of issues related to teenage alcohol consumption and conducting a survey to find out if stores were aware of the laws. FNL disbanded after difficulties with a transition in leadership and the coordinator’s reassignment and was dormant for a year.

Jan, 2017 Issue

Nonprofits and businesses working together to support at-risk youth. Research shows that youth who engage in their communities are less likely to use drugs and alcohol, drop out of high school or be involved in criminal behavior. Involved youth also perform better academically and have lower rates of teen pregnancy. The North Bay is fortunate to have many outstanding organizations working to meet the needs of at-risk youth, providing tools that will help them become self-sufficient and offering them the support they need to become our next generation of leaders.
