PDX Parent Magazine’s September issue introduces the 25th class of the Multnomah Youth Commission (MYC). Find their article on page 7.

Since 1996, MYC has trained and activated 479 youth to grow leadership skills and build civic engagement power to take ownership of the region’s outlook.

Three Multnomah Youth Commissioners were interviewed as part of immigrant and refugee story collection efforts. You can view the stories of Arianna, Rakeb and Noah on our website.

The MYC is the official youth-led advisory body for both Multnomah County and the City of Portland. Members are between the ages of 13 to 21 and work to influence policy and positive perceptions of youth. Civic Life and Multnomah County Chair’s Office of Diversity and Equity share support for the advisory body. Learn more about the MYC on our website.
