The Santa Clara County Youth Task Force (YTF) is a group composed of young people, from the ages of 12 to 18, empowered to make a difference. They serve as an advisory body to the Santa Clara County Board of Supervisors and the Human Relations Commission. They address the issues that teens face on a regular basis. They work to educate teens about the harms that affect their community and strive to find solutions and policies that will make better the lives of young people today. In doing so, they promote youth activism and advocacy, establishing a firm belief in the importance of youth speaking to youth. From that connection they hope will stem an inspiration in teens to embrace the culture and diversity around them, to work together, to contribute in making a positive change and to inspire others to become civically engaged.
