Youth Commission


Graphic-Youth Commission Logo    

Provide intergenerational civic engagement and leadership opportunities for young people in Olmsted County.

The Rochester-Olmsted Youth Commission has been a successful partnership between Olmsted County and the City of Rochester for over 25 years. We represent a cross section of high school age youth and adults who work with local government, businesses, and non-profit organizations to give young people in Olmsted County a voice. Our presence sends a clear message that youth in our community are valued.

The Commission meets the first Wednesday of every month (September through May) from 4:45pm – 6:15pm in the cafeteria on the lower level of the Government Center (151 SE 4th Street SE, Rochester MN).
