Yolo Youth Commission
Mission

To enhance the quality of support, services, and programs for youth through working with local leaders to make funding decisions to make a positive impact on youth development and empowerment for all.

What We Do
  • Commissions are an active part in our local government and will hold meetings monthly to understand the existing efforts to support youth and determine what needs of youth may not be met or need support in.
  • Issue a yearly request for grant funding proposals from youth-centered efforts or youth organizations
  • Review and evaluate proposals to present to the BOS to support Yolo County youth services, programs, and organizations with funding opportunities.
  • Conduct studies and advise on other proposals and programs as requested by the BOS and lead their own interests through studies on youth needs and development.
Background

With the recognition of the importance of youth engagement and participation, this is the first-ever youth commission for the county. With about 25% of the county’s population under the age of 18, this opportunity creates a permanent pathway for young people to shape their future and build community in Yolo County. Nothing for YOUth without YOUth!
