The City of Sacramento is looking for people interested in applying to be on the new Sacramento Children’s Fund Planning and Oversight Commission.
This nine-member commission is tasked with developing five-year strategic investment plans for the City in consultation with the Sacramento Youth Commission and making recommendations to the City Council for adoption.
“We invite anyone who would like to be a part of supporting young people in Sacramento to apply for this commission,” said City Clerk Mindy Cuppy.
The Sacramento Children’s Fund – also known as Measure L — was passed by voters in November. It supports positive youth development and youth violence prevention programs for children and youth under 25 years old.
Commissioners will serve four-year terms and should anticipate meeting monthly for the first six months as they develop the five-year plan. Members can serve two consecutive terms.
After the plan is adopted, it is expected that commissioners will meet two-to-four times a year.
The Mayor and each Councilmember will appoint a member to the commission.
Applicants must have personal experience as a participant of youth services or demonstrated knowledge and professional experience in youth development theory, youth program implementation, or youth program evaluation.
People can apply for the positions by filling out an online application by June 30. Please contact the Office of the City Clerk at (916) 808-7200 or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org for assistance.
