Youth Commission
General Youth Commission Information

The Youth Commission was established in 1995 to provide for communication between Yucca Valley’s elected officials and the young people of the community. The Commission is defined in Chapter 4, Section 12 of the Yucca Valley Municipal Code.

Students in grades 7 through 12 who attend school in Yucca Valley are eligible to serve on the Yucca Valley Youth Commission. Previous commissioners may be reappointed to serve additional terms. Appointments are made in September of each year for Youth Commission members through the school year. The Youth Commission is not active in the summer months.

Each year, the commissioners jointly determine what they want to accomplish during their term. The objectives are generally based on creative and effective ways to communicate with the young people of the community, and with local government officials.

In recent years, the Youth Commission has produced informative video programs aired on local cable television channels, developed and presented forums to local schools, conducted research about developing a teen center, and coordinated special events with positive messages to youth.

The Youth Commission meets regularly with Town of Yucca Valley staff members in formal public meetings and in less formal workshops. Monthly reports are presented to the Parks, Recreation, and Cultural Commission and an annual report is given to the Town Council.
