In February 2008, recognizing the need for area youth to have a voice in local government, Harford County Executive David Craig requested the County Council to re- establish a Youth Commission in the county. In 2009, the Harford County Youth Commission became a part of the Department of Community Services. Youth from all six council districts are represented on the Commission, as well as youth-servicing organizations.
The purpose of the Youth Commission is to assess the needs and resources of Harford County in terms of programs, jobs, and activities, and to suggest programs to meet the specific needs identified by the assessments and also identify the appropriate agencies for the implementation of those programs.
