About this Board / Commission

Meet the Members

The Oakland Youth Advisory Commission (OYAC) seeks to improve the lives all of young people in Oakland and strives to represent the youth voice by advocating for the needs of our peers across the city. We believe that young people know what's best for young people and as a unified voice, with the support of Adult Allies, we can and will be heard! We believe that participating in civic engagement at the local level is one of the surest pathways to influence positive lasting change in our community and we are committed to identifying and providing opportunities for youth to better understand and engage in local government.
