The Youth Commission works in conjunction with the El Dorado County Board of Supervisors and the El Dorado County Office of Education. Throughout the year members of the Youth Commission participate in local activities and projects; offering their assistance to other youth and non-profit organizations, as well as planning and implementing their own projects that benefit the youth of El Dorado County. Youth Commissioners develop skills in leadership and governing as they work together for the benefit of the community.
