Established 2009
Established 2009
The Placer County Youth Commission is an Advisory Board to the Board of Supervisors, dedicated to promoting the youth voice in local government. Founded in 2009, the Youth Commission is made up of eighteen youth of diverse backgrounds who care about the Placer County community and have a drive to make our community the best possible place for youth.

Young people who serve on this commission learn about the local government process first hand by giving recommendations to the Board of Supervisors that will help shape public decisions, policies, and programs as they relate to the youth of Placer County.  The Youth Commission seeks to raise the profile of young people within the community, provide and receive information through networks with schools, youth groups, youth-serving organizations, and community institutions, research youth and community issues, as well as provide and promote civic participation and youth involvement opportunities in the community.

Youth from the community are encouraged to come to our meetings, events, and activities, and learn how to take action!  The Youth Commission is operated in partnership Placer County Health and Human Services in cooperation with the Placer County Board of Supervisors.  Youth Commissioners are supported by an adult advisor from Placer County HHS.
