About Us

We, the Youth Task Force, believe that recreational activities and community activism implemented by youth and for youth are effective deterrents to drug abuse, gangs, violence and teen pregnancy.

The Youth Task Force (YTF) is a group of young people empowered to advise the santa Clara County Board of Supervisors on issues and policies affecting youth. we promote youth activism and advocacy by rallying for policies and solutions to problems that would improve the lives of teens. We believe in this importance of youth speaking to other youth, the community and elected officials in issues affecting youth. Task Force members are taking a stand against the California High School Exit Exam, advocating for Juvenile Detention Reform, and are actively speaking out on education and hate issues that adversely affect young people throughout the county.
