Title

Supervisor Thomas recommending the Board receive a presentation from the 2020-21 El Dorado County Youth Commission and present certificates of recognition to each Commissioner. The purpose of their presentation is to report out on their activities and accomplishments during the current school year.

Body

DISCUSSION / BACKGROUND

During this current school year, COVID limited in-person interaction of the Commission but the students were motivated and resourceful and kept their projects moving forward in the face of that restraint.

Although Supervisor Thomas was just appointed as the Liaison to the Youth Commission on January 5th of this year, the one meeting that she attended evidenced both the effectiveness and the importance of this Commission. The dedication these students show in creating a voice for the youth of our community is awe-inspiring as is the development of leadership skills within the Commissioners themselves. It is a privilege to provide this venue to the Youth Commissioners to update the Board and our Community on their progress.
