The Junior Commissioner Project, started in 1993, is a mentorship 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.
Due to the pandemic, the Junior Commission meetings were all held virtually for the current cohort. For the 2021-2022 academic year, we anticipate meetings will be held in person unless prohibited by health regulations.
Acceptance into the program is based on a written application and an interview process. The application period for the 2021-2022 term that begins August 2021 is now open. Applications are due by March 5, 2021.
