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 25 members, between the ages of 13-21, who reside or attend school in San Mateo County. Funded by the Health and Policy Planning Unit of the County’s Health Services, reporting to the Board of Supervisors, and housed under the Youth Leadership Institute, the Commission is a collaborative effort of all three San Mateo County serving entities.
