We aim to serve our community while gaining the tools necessary to become effective and dedicated leaders in the future. We hope to engage and work alongside other teen leaders to bring forth a change in our districts. Every second Tuesday of the month, we meet to discuss ideas for new projects, future events, and follow-up on ongoing initiatives.
We strive to inspire change in our communities
The Dallas Youth Commission works to encourage teens to take their lives into their own hands. Don't let others be the change you envisioned - it's time for you to make your inspiration a reality. With the help of our initiatives, you can accomplish anything.
