The First Selectman’s Youth Commission is a community of young people committed to promoting the youth voice in the Town of Greenwich. Inspired by First Selectman, Peter Tesei, The Youth Commission was established in 2014 to engage a diverse group of high school students--who represent different backgrounds, different schools, different geographic parts of Town, and different interests--to champion youth concerns for the purpose of improving the quality of life for young people in the Town of Greenwich.

As advocates of youth initiatives in the Town of Greenwich, members of The First Selectman’s Youth Commission review and address issues that concern and impact youth and teens, exchange ideas and collaborate with town entities and other youth organizations, and provide support for programs and initiatives focused on positive youth development and engagement. The Youth Commission works directly with the First Selectman and the Town’s Youth Services Bureau Administrator.

The First Selectman’s Youth Commission strives to create and develop projects to help the youth of Greenwich. For more information about FYSC’s mission, events, and members, please click here.
