Olmos Park Youth Commission (OYPC) expanded its youth board from four members (since its launch in 2018) to ten members as it embarks on its fall slate of activities. The board, like OPYC’s programming, is organized along the youth commission’s learning pillars of leadership & citizenship, community building, service and enterprise — each pillar supported by marketing and communications.
Since its launch in 2018, Olmos Park Youth Commission members have engaged in more than 40 programs and donated nearly 1,000 hours of community service. Members participate in programs and events they create as well as meeting quarterly with industry and local leaders. Youth members gain practical skills like organizing, planning, public service, exchanging and debating ideas and team building.
