The purpose of the Governor’s Youth Commission (GYC) is to engage youth through innovative programs, events and campaigns that effectively serve their communities in areas most meaningful to them.

The GYC is a diverse body of Arizona’s high school sophomores, juniors, and seniors serving for the 2017– 2018 school year.  The GYC is composed of members from all of Arizona’s fifteen counties. 
Quarterly meetings are held on Saturdays from approximately 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
Committee meetings are held on Wednesdays at 6:00 p.m. via GoToMeeting.

Teens learn how to serve on a board, participate in committees, plan service projects, and events. Each year the group chooses areas of focus such as, substance abuse, bullying, and other youth challenges where they can have an impact.
