The Youth Commission is a body of 17 youth from San Francisco between the ages of 12 and 23. Created by the voters under a 1995 amendment to the City Charter, the commission is responsible for advising the Board of Supervisors and the Mayor on policies and laws related to young people. The Youth Commission is also charged with providing comment and recommendation on all proposed laws that would primarily affect youth before the Board takes final action.  You can read more about the Youth Commission here.

Student Success Fund Survey from San Francisco Youth Commission

The San Francisco Youth Commission wants to ensure that youth voices are heard and considered when the City debates where and how Prop G funding is spent. This survey provides an opportunity for San Francisco students to share their thoughts on how to improve San Francisco schools. Any student from Pre-K-12th grade is eligible to participate in the survey, aged up to 18 years old. 

What is Prop G? The Student Success Fund, Prop G, was passed by San Francisco voters in the November 2022's election. The Prop established the Student Success Fund grant program, which will be administered by the City Department of Children and Families, with extra grants for San Francisco Unified School District schools from Pre-K to 12th grade. Specifically, the grant would be awarded from the Student Success Fund to individual schools for hiring more educators, nurses, tutors, literacy and math specialists, academic coaches, social workers, specialized curriculum, school psychologists, and other support staff. The fund could also be used for community-based organizations or city departments to provide after-school programs, therapeutic arts, and culture programs, or summer school. *The grants are not to be used for funding core staffing.* You can find the survey at this link, and attached to this email is the flyer for distribution.
