The Junior Commission is a project established by the Alameda County Commission on the Status of Women to develop leadership ability; to build high self-esteem; to show how government works; and to demonstrate how young women can become empowered by advocating on policy related issues.
The program strives to promote a leadership development program for young women that allows them to learn more about themselves while impacting their local community. Each year, the Junior Commissioners develop projects that they present to the public at an Annual Leadership Summit.
