Centennial Youth Commission Banner

The Centennial Youth Commission was formed by City Council in July 2003 to provide a voice for the City’s youth. The Commission is composed of eleven teens from the City of Centennial, ranging in age from 13 to 18.

The Youth Commission meets twice a month and participates in City-wide events, develops community programs, performs community service projects and participates in the policy-making process. This year the Commission has been very busy in the Centennial community. 

The Centennial Youth Commission meets on the second and fourth Thursdays of every month. Meetings begin at 7 p.m. at the Centennial Civic Center.

Youth Achievement Awards 

Youth Achievement Awards: This year, six outstanding youth in Centennial were presented with the annual Youth Achievement Award by the Centennial Youth Commission. The Youth Achievement Award honors and recognizes youth who have made a significant impact on the Centennial community through volunteer work and have demonstrated exceptional leadership. 

Teen Court

The Centennial Municipal Court and the Youth Commission work in partnership with students to administer Teen Court. Teen Court is run entirely by youth including a jury of peers. Teen Courts have proven to be tremendously successful in other jurisdictions resulting in fewer repeat offenses. With an emphasis on early intervention, prevention and a commitment to restorative justice, the City hopes to better address the needs of youth while ensuring safety in our community. Learn more information about Teen Court in the Teen Court Brochure. Watch the 4 CBS Denver and KDVR stories that recently aired.
