The Commission consists of nine members with the intention to include at least one person from each public middle school and public high school in Cupertino, if possible. Membership on the Commission is limited to Cupertino residents. Members may attend schools outside of the City limits, or be schooled at home. Commissioners must be in 8th through 11th grade. Teen Commissioners serve two-year staggered terms.

The powers and functions of the Teen Commission are to advise the City Council and staff on issues and projects important to youth (also see Municipal Code 2.95.080 Powers and Functions).

The Commission meets September through August, twice monthly (except December and during the summer) on the second and fourth Wednesday at 6:00 p.m. at the Quinlan Community Center, 10185 N. Stelling Rd. For more information, please call staff liaison Daniel Mestizo, 408.777.3134.
