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 the following basic kinds of documents:
memos that contain comment and recommendation on proposed pieces of legislation referred to the Youth Commission by the Board of Supervisors;
resolutions that formally articulate the Youth Commission's position on various matters;
a set of budget and policy priorities intended to guide the youth-related fiscal decisions that the Mayor and the Board must make each year; this is sometimes referred to as our Annual Report, as required by the City Charter; and
on a more sporadic basis, reports on particular issues of the day.
The 2015-2016 Youth Commission, sworn into office in September 2015, is hard at work. Stay up to date and read about their legislative, policy and community work here. To aid in the orderly conduct of business, the Commission shall have the authority to create, amend, and repeal its own code of bylaws. Click here to read the 2015-2016 bylaws.
