Youth Advisory Committee

The Youth Center Advisory Committee meets monthly to discuss how to make the Foster City an awesome place for teens.  Advisory Committee members work with Teen Center's Recreation Coordinator to identify teen problems, suggest solutions and to come up with teen special events and programs. Members will also have opportunities to volunteer at various special events. Our Advisory Committee consists of  junior high and high school students (up to 15 members) who reside in Foster City. Each group updates staff on the goings on at each school campus, as well as plans and executes programs and special events throughout the school year. Meetings are held the first Wednesday of each month at The VIBE at 6:30pm. The public is invited to attend.
