The number of Alcohol-impaired driving incidents is too high in Santa Cruz County. In 2016, an Assembly Bill was signed to allow salons and barber shops in California to serve alcohol. Santa Cruz County’s Friday Night Live is a youth-adult partnership that aims to create a healthy and safe community. The capstone project consists of the implementation and evaluation of an educational outreach program targeting salons and barbers about Assembly Bill 1322, which regulates the service of alcoholic beverages for beauty salons and barber shops. The educational outreach goal was to increase knowledge of the Assembly Bill among all establishments and to distribute materials required by AB1322 to venues that do serve alcohol. The recommended next steps are to make sure that venues are using best practices and to continuously monitor if new venues have decided to serve alcohol.
