Community Service – Commission on Youth

ACES program through VMH receives 2010 COY AwardAs the summer heats up so does the Salt Lake County Commission on Youth(COY), an advocacy organization formed in 1974 to promote youth causes and advise the Salt Lake County Mayor’s office in matters of youth planning, policies and procedures. The June strategic planning meeting launched discussion on hot topics such as the growing number of homeless youth, truancy, and parents and youth engaged in school and the education process. The board members (30 and counting) represent educators, administrators, parents and students from each of the four school districts in Salt Lake County, as well as community business representatives, social service, law enforcement and legal providers make up the diverse body of COY. It’s an amazing group of individuals who are all leaders in their field volunteering their time and pooling resources to positively impact youth programs. COY also recognizes youth and adults for their outstanding contributions in making a difference in the lives of youth.

The 9th Annual COY Awards were presented in May 2010 by Mayor Peter Corroon to individuals and groups serving in the community:

COY will be receiving nominations for next year’s awards soon and is always looking for contributors both youth and adults to join the board.
