New Tool! Building a Pipeline of Youth Leaders and Decision Makers
Civic empowerment is key to youth health. The Health Policy and Planning Program is supporting The Daly City Youth Health Center and Youth Leadership Institute to build a local pipeline of underrepresented youth in boards and commissions. This effort is part of the Community Collaborative for Children’s Success (CCCS)’s Racial Equity Action Subcommittee that aims to increase the representation of youth in decision-making bodies to build healthier communities. To make it easier for local partners to find local youth councils and boards and commissions with youth seats, we created these lists: youth commissions and councils and boards and commissions with youth seats from across San Mateo County. These lists are a work in progress and we would like to hear from you if your jurisdiction has additional information or feedback for us. Please email Rosa Torpis, firstname.lastname@example.org.
