The Youth Commission consists of up to 30 members, half of whom are electors of the town and half of whom are student residents of the town. Adult members are appointed by the First Selectman for two year terms and student members for one year terms.

Responsible for promoting the positive development of all youth in their families, schools, and community, and among their peers, the Commission assesses the needs and interests of young people in Westport, encouraging programs, and developing resources to respond to these needs.
