2010-2011 Issues

The primary goal of the Seattle Youth Commission is give teenagers in the city a way to influence policy decisions that affect them and their peers.

For the 2010-2011 year we picked four issues to focus our efforts on based on feedback from our Youth Community Meetings and divided into corresponding committees:

  1. Education
  2. Youth Violence
  3. Race and Social Justice
  4. Transportation

See the video below for our presentations to the City Council, or scroll down for summaries of what each committee was able to accomplish.
