How did the Youth Commission start?
The Northampton Youth Commission first met in September of 2001 when a group of ambitious teenage residents of Northampton approached Mayor Mary Clare Higgins with the idea of creating a special commission. The goal of the organization was to give youth their own voice in city politics, a voice that without the presence of the Youth Commission was all too often dismissed or ignored.
