Youth Commission

The Central Shenandoah Valley Office on Youth is a regional government agency committed to meeting the needs of youth and families in Staunton, Waynesboro, and Augusta County. The three localities provide financial support and other resources to the office.

The OOY maintains a Youth Commission that serves as an Advisory Board to the Office on Youth Director.


The Commissioners:

  1. serve as youth advocates, ambassadors, and volunteers assisting Office on Youth programming,

  2. provide input related to youth programming, funding, and community needs,

  3. ensure the provision of comprehensive youth services in our region,

  4. recommend policies involving programming for youth and families, and

  5. evaluate and seek solutions to problems, activities, and concerns.

The Youth Commission is comprised of 15 members, 5 representing each locality. One representative from each locality is a youth between 13 and 18 years old. Adults serve a three-year term. Youth can serve until the age of 18. The Youth Commission meets bi-monthly.

We need you!
