Miami-Dade County Youth Commission
The Miami-Dade County Youth Commission was created by County Ordinance in 2011 as part of the vision of Commissioner Barbara J. Jordan, District 1. Its purpose is to provide young people with a vehicle to participate in the process of County government. Motivated students from each Commission district represent and articulate the needs of youth in Miami-Dade and advise the Mayor and Board of County Commissioners on matters affecting the youth population. Officials hear firsthand what concerned teens have to say, have the opportunity to educate them about the governmental process, and create a symbiotic relationship between youth and the County.
The members of the Youth Commission must meet the following qualifications:
- Be between the ages of fifteen to eighteen years at the time of appointment
- Be in the 10th, 11th, or 12th grade
- Minimum 2.0 grade point average
- Demonstrate a sincere interest in and the motivation to work for the community
- Have a background in community-based activities
