Grand Forks Youth Commission

Youth Can... Support Our Troops

The ‘Youth Can: Support Our Troops’ campaign partnered with many area businesses last year to collect and assemble 200 care packages for deployed troops. They hope to increase that number this year.

If you would like to participate this year by donating items for the troops, donating money, or if you want to help pack the boxes, e-mail the Public Information Center at info@grandforksgov.com.

“A cooperative coalition of youth and adult mentors
working to enhance the lives of Grand Forks Youth.”

Understanding the importance of a focus on youth and the need for youth input in our community, the Mayor’s Cabinet on Young People established in 2007 the Grand Forks Youth Commission.

The Youth Commission exists to identify, promote, improve, increase and provide services and programs for young people in Grand Forks. The Youth Commission is a group of 24 young people between the ages of 14 and 18 who advise the Mayor’s Cabinet on Young People and advocate to the community on behalf of youth. The Youth Commission is a diverse group of youth representing many perspectives, ages and backgrounds.

The Commission is an important way for youth to be actively involved in decisions of community entities that affect youth. Youth Commissioners develop leadership skills, encourage other young people to get involved, and voice the concerns and needs of our young people.
