This will give you a true sense of what the Youth Commission is about and help you consider applying next year. The meeting agendas with Zoom link are posted on this site (view menu on the left) the Monday before each meeting.

Mission Statement

The Youth Commission strives to address issues affecting youth in San Mateo County and close the gap between adult and youth perspectives. By placing youth in committees and on County Boards and Commissions, the Youth Commission increases awareness of and advocates for youth issues, advises the Board of Supervisors, presents policy recommendations, and creates projects that serve the community.

Introduction

The San Mateo County Youth Commission is an advisory commission to the San Mateo County Board of Supervisors, established in 1993 to address youth need in the county and provide youth voice in local government. The Commission consists of 27 members, between the ages of 13-20, who reside and attend school in San Mateo County. Funded by the County Manager's Office, reporting to the Board of Supervisors, and housed under the Budget, Policy, and Performance Office, the Commission is a collaborative effort of all three San Mateo County serving entities.
