D7YC is made up of high school students of San Francisco’s District 7. The members discuss issues affecting residents of District 7 and communicate directly with the Youth Commissioner of District 7. They propose projects to address issues in the district, draft proposed legislation, and review legislation proposed by the Supervisor that affects youth concerns.
Participating on the Youth Council trains participants in leadership, facilitation, policy research, event planning, and community organizing. Youth Council members gain a better understanding of how city government and the Board of Supervisors operate and become more conversant with neighborhood issues affecting District 7. The D7YC also provides special opportunities to meet with City Department staff and community stakeholders to learn more about current issues and proposals in our City.
