What Is the Milwaukee County Youth Commission?

In 2022, County Executive David Crowley and Board Chairwoman Marcelia Nicholson co-authored a resolution to re-establish the Milwaukee County Youth Commission.

The commission consists of 20 members, age 14 to 18, who reside in Milwaukee County and attend high school. The commission exists to:

  • Serve and advance the interests of Milwaukee County youth
  • Make advisory recommendations about policy and budgetary decisions to the Milwaukee County Board of Supervisors
  • Advance Milwaukee County’s mission of achieving racial equity

The commission meets monthly, except for August. One member represents each of the 18 supervisory districts and two serve as co-chairs. Commissioners are appointed to one- or two-year terms.

What Are the Benefits of Serving on the Milwaukee County Youth Commission?

The Milwaukee County Youth Commission provides young people in Milwaukee County with a unique experience in community service, civic engagement, and policy and budget decision-making.

Youth commissioners receive $12.50 per hour for active participation in Youth Commission meetings and activities. In addition, commissioners receive technology support to participate in remote meetings as well as transportation and a meal for in-person meetings, which take place on weekdays from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. The Youth Commission has direct access to a group of five adult advisors, one of which is appointed by the Youth Commission.
