Expanding the Youth Commission and Enhancing Youth Participation in the City


(a) Maintain the current Youth Commission ages 14-20 and strive to ensure the Youth Commission and Youth Advisory Councils are representative of the diversity of the City of San José;                                                                                                              (b) Explore the option of compensating appointed Youth Commissioners with stipends, facilitating the participation of economically diverse youth and increasing engagement among Commissioners. This aligns with the citywide policy to reduce financial barriers to serve on boards or commissions; and,                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                               (c) Expand the advisory and recommendation powers of the Youth Commission to City Council and the Mayor and, following the municipal code power and duties, designate youth representatives to other San José Commissions.                                                                  (Library)
