The Program:
The Douglas County Youth Commission is a student leadership and enrichment program for high schoolers in Douglas County. The program runs parallel to the school year and every month our students have sessions where they learn about the basics of county government operations, developments in Douglas County’s public and business sectors, and work on community service projects.

Our Youth Commission class of 2023 learning sessions have included Planning and Zoning, Socio-economic trends of Metro-Atlanta, Demographics, Arts and Culture in Douglas, Douglas Communications, Judicial Process, Business in Douglas, and Public Health. The Youth Commission’s community service work has included organizing donated items for the Volunteer Douglas Give Drive.
