In its work of advising the City's legislative and executive branches on the "unmet needs" of San Francisco's young people, the Youth Commission regularly produces five basic kinds of documents:
memos that contain comment and recommendation on proposed pieces of legislation referred to the Youth Commission by the Board of Superivsors;
resolutions that formally articulate the Youth Commission's position on various matters;
a set of budget priorities intended to guide the youth-related fiscal decisions that the Mayor and the Board must make each year;
- an Annual Report, as required by the City Charter; and
- on a more sporadic basis, reports on particular issues of the day.
The 2012-2013 Youth Commission, sworn into office on August 30, 2012, is hard at work. Stay up to date and read about their legislative, policy and community work here.
