Apply for Seat on Marin County Youth Commission

Through July 2, the application period is open for applicants aged 12 to 23 for the Marin County Youth Commission representing all areas of Marin County. There are 23 representatives on the commission, which acts as the political voice for young people by engaging with the Marin County Board of Supervisors and other policymakers.

Commission members collectively identify issues they are passionate about, then create and implement social justice campaigns to create positive change. Over the past year, the Youth Commission focused on education, equity, mental health, youth substance use, and LGBTQ issues in Marin. The commission empowers young people with skills, information, and organizational support so they can participate within and significantly impact the political, educational, recreational, and social service systems in their community.

The Youth Leadership Institute, which oversees the commission with the County of Marin, is eager to receive applications from members of marginalized populations. Applicants must live or attend school in Marin and be able to attend four meetings each month.

The Youth Commission application is online; application forms can be requested by emailing the Clerk of the Board staff. Interviews are to be scheduled for July 5-15. To ask questions about serving on the Youth Commission, contact Samantha Ramirez at the Youth Leadership Institute.

Love is Rad Summer Camps for Tween/Teen Girls

Love Is Rad is a tween/teen (ages 9-15 & ages 16-19) girls Self LOVE summer camp & workshop series (during the school year).

This workshop is designed by Tiana Baumsteiger to help tween & teen girls with the challenges they are currently facing. They will learn the tools of Self LOVE and Self Care and why it's vital for a happy life. They will learn how to honor all their emotions, how to remove blocks and access their self worth. We will speak about body awareness and body positivity. How to create a sacred space within their home. They will learn what their intuition is and how to open it up and allow it to guide them in their life. We will play games, learn from nature and connect to a deeper part of who they truly are. The girls will create a ceremony on the last day utilizing the tools they have learned and will then state their intentions to move forward into the new empowered selves.

"As a parent of a teen girl whose self-esteem was at its all time low, this magnificent workshop knocked on our door. The universe works in magical ways. I asked for help & we received it. Tiana came along with this wonderful, and very needed workshop for our teen daughter.

She started very shy and by the end she was glowing and still is. Her self love & attitude toward life has flourished. She has the tools needed for the pressures of social media, friends and everything in between. It is incredible how her perspective has changed. She knows her worth, she knows she is beautiful, she knows she is brave. Everything that Tiana shared with my daughter will stay forever. For that, there is no price you can pay. This was a gift for her.s a parent I want to say thank you Tiana! I am grateful I found you and the Love is Rad Workshop. We love you."
