Arizona Governor's Youth Commission

"The GYC is composed of high school students who represent their peers from all the 15 counties of Arizona. The Commission provides recommendations to the Governor on the greatest challenges facing youth in Arizona and addresses these challenges through impactful community projects throughout the state. This is a unique opportunity to empower students to make a positive difference in their communities. Last year’s GYC focused their projects on minimizing accidents caused by distracted driving, raising awareness of the importance of literacy, educating peers on the dangers of human trafficking, encouraging mindful decision making on drug and alcohol abuse, and working to prevent teen dating violence."
