The City of Brentwood Youth Commission is an advisory body to the City Council, dedicated to promoting the youth voice in local government. Founded in 1999, the Youth Commission is made up of ten students of diverse backgrounds who care about the Brentwood community and have a drive to make our community the best possible place for youth. Youth Commissioners are supported by City staff. They advise the Parks and Recreation Department to identify and address concerns and issues and are responsible for planning and implementing social and community-oriented activities. The Youth Commission has organized youth-oriented events such as movie nights, parades, youth forums, and also participates in city events. Other accomplishments of the Youth Commission include assisting with the application process as the City of Brentwood applied for both the “100 Best Cities for Young People” and “Playful City USA” awards.

Members of the Brentwood Youth Commission experience a unique opportunity to work with city leaders and staff, as well as students from all Brentwood middle and high schools, and implement policies and programs that positively impact the youth of our community. Commissioners also gain valuable leadership skills in the city spectrum as well as develop friendships and relationships that will last a lifetime.

All Youth Commission meetings are open to the public and anyone interested in getting involved as a future Commissioner or who wants to share a concern related to youth can attend the monthly meetings. The Commission Meetings are held on the first Wednesday of each month, beginning at 7:00 p.m., via Zoom.

Consistent with Contra Costa County Health orders, and in accordance with California Government Code Section 54953(b) and Governor Newsom's Executive Order N-29-20 and N-08-21 concerning teleconference meetings, Youth Commission meetings will be held exclusively via teleconference, using the Zoom video conferencing system. Please refer to the meeting agenda for Zoom access information.
