The Junior Commissioner Project, started in 1993, is a mentor-ship project of the Commission on the Status of Women. This nationally recognized, ground-breaking project is designed to develop and mentor high school youth for future leadership roles in our community. Junior Commissioners are selected each spring for a term that runs concurrent with the following school year. Junior Commissioners may be eligible for school credit for their participation.
Acceptance into the program is based on a written application and an interview process. The application period for the 2020-2021 term that begins August 2020 is now open. Applications are due by March 6, 2020.
