About the Escambia County Youth Commission
The Escambia County Youth Commission was created to give Escambia youth a vehicle to participate in the process of county government. Youth Commissioners will become familiar with how government operates and resolve issues. They will also get to participate in county events and be a voice for Escambia County youth.
Leadership, service and excellence represent just a few of the many qualities that describe the Escambia County Youth Commission, its members, and the work that this organization will produce. Sponsored by the Escambia County Board of Commissioners, the Escambia County Youth Commission is a leadership and service-orientated program that empowers young people to become knowledgeable and involved in the local governmental process.
Escambia County needs young leaders who want to serve their commission districts on behalf of their peers and learn how to influence public policy. Applications for service on the 2019-2020 Youth Commission are now available until Feb. 28, 2019.
The Youth Commission will consist of 10 members. Each Escambia County Commissioner will select two Youth Commissioners who reside in their respective districts.
