Youth Commission Service Projects are projects that all 5 Youth Advisory Councils take on simultaneously. The Youth Commission decides to join together in an effort to make a large impact and provide support to community members and organizations throughout the county. Take a look below to see some of our service projects we have taken on in the past.
Youth Commission Clothing Drive
All 5 Youth Advisory Councils participate in our county-wide Annual Clothing Drive where we collect, sort and fold clothing donations that are distributed to Shelter’s throughout the county.
Youth Commission Backpack and School Supply Drive
All 5 Youth Advisory Councils participate in our Annual School Supply Drive in order to collect backpacks and school supplies for children in need throughout our county.
DPSS Foster Youth Graduation Baskets
Each Youth Advisory Council works to collect donations or sponsorships in order to compile a basket for graduating Foster Youth in order to assist them with their new stage in life. Basket themes include College Dorm essentials, First Apartment basics, College School Supplies etc. Baskets are donated to DPSS for their annual Foster Youth Graduation Party.
RUHS PH SOAR Program
The Youth Commission has partnered with the RUHS TSAPP Program since 2018 and continue to partner with the expanded SOAR program which inludes the following trainings: Teen Suicide Awareness and Prevention Program (TSAPP), Overdose Awareness and Prevention Program (OAPP) and Resilience Initiative through Support and Empowerment Program (RISE). Each YAC participates in each of these three trainings and then work together to share this information with the community in a creative campaign with the support of RUHS.
