Mission Statement

We, the Youth Task Force, believe that recreational activities and community activism implemented by youth and for youth are effective deterrents to drug abuse, gangs, violence, and teen pregnancy. Youth leadership adn education are key to the healthy progression of tomorrow's leaders.

Description

The Santa Clara County Youth Task Force (YTF) is a group composed of young people, from the ages 12 to 18, empowered to make a difference. We serve as an advisory body to the Santa Clara County Board of Supervisors and the Human Relations Commission. We address the issues that teens face on a regular basis and work to educate teens about the role of local government in social justice. In doing so, we promote youth activism and advocacy establishing a firm belief in the importance of youth speaking to youth. From that connection we hope will stem an inspiration in teens to embrace the cultures and diversity around them, to work together in contributing to making positive change.
