Junior high school students are invited to the second “Friday Night Lights” at the Canyon Country Community Center this week, featuring XerGames wall-based interactive games, a social media contests and other activities, an organizer said.

The night of teen action is designed to “get junior high students out there, involved and get them busy,” said Anthony Martinez, human services coordinator for Santa Clarita and organizer for “Friday Night Lights.”

Targeted for the activities are those students not necessarily involved in sports or other after-school activities, Martinez said, but rather those looking for something to do.

The ultimate goal is to engage youth and keep them off the streets and “out of mischief,” he said.

The first “Friday Night Lights,” held Feb. 1, drew 25-30 youth, Martinez said. Plans call for several activities in Canyon Country to build a group of involved youth, then to move the event around to other areas of the city to build attendance, hopefully 100 or more teens.

During the summer, activities are planned every Friday night for eight weeks.

Friday’s event runs 7-9:30 p.m. at the Canyon Country Community Center, 18792 Flying Tiger Drive. For more information, contact 661-286-4006.
