The Snohomish County Children's Commission recognizes children as our most precious resource and the most important investment relative to the future of our society. We recognize it is up to us, the adult members of our community, to invest wisely in our children, to protect and nurture them and to adequately prepare them to assume stewardship of the future.
The Children's Commission is a group of 25 members, including two youth, who serve as advisors on issues of health, safety and welfare of children. The Commission is mandated by Snohomish County Code to act in an advocacy role on behalf of children of Snohomish County. Research and development work are conducted through forums, public hearings and a strong committee structure. Advocacy work is accomplished through publications, legislative efforts, active involvement in resolving local issues and monthly meetings held in public session.
