The First Selectman’s Youth Commission engages a diverse group of high school students to champion youth concerns for the purpose of improving the quality of life for young people in the Town of Greenwich.
Commissioners actively engage in opportunities to create and contribute to community youth initiatives. They partner with Town agencies, neighborhoods, and community organizations to facilitate community conversations and engagement, youth activities, and participate on other Town boards, commissions, and committees in the planning of youth-oriented. Funds raised for the FSYC will be used to support Youth Commission operations and community projects, programs, and events.
The First Selectman’s Youth Commission is a community of young people committed to promoting the youth voice in the Town of Greenwich.
The Youth Commission was established in 2014 to engage a diverse group of high school students--who represent different backgrounds, different schools, different geographic parts of Town, and different interests--to champion youth concerns for the purpose of improving the quality of life for young people in the Town of Greenwich. As advocates of youth initiatives in the Town of Greenwich, members of The First Selectman’s Youth Commission review and address issues that concern and impact youth and teens, exchange ideas and collaborate with town entities and other youth organizations, and provide support for programs and initiatives focused on positive youth development and engagement. The Youth Commission works directly with the First Selectman and the Town’s Youth Services Bureau Administrator. Accomplishments of The First Selectman’s Youth Commission include assisting in saving the Safe Rides Program, creating an online suggestion box allowing young people to voice their needs and concerns, co-hosting a community forum on opioid addiction, and developing and introducing the annual Greenwich Student Diversity Leadership Conference for all Town high school students.
