REPORT TO YOUTH COMMISSION

SUBJECT
Title
Youth Commission Committee Report on Work Plan Goal-Inclusiveness

Report
BACKGROUND
The Youth Commission FY 2019/20 Work Plan includes a goal to foster inclusiveness amongst their peers and within the community. During the past two terms, commissioners have hosted the Inclusive Makerspace, a STEM-based event for youth with special needs. This term, they are looking to focus on highlighting the variety of cultures present in the San Francisco Bay Area, specifically those within the City of Santa Clara.

DISCUSSION
The Youth Commission's Inclusiveness Committee (Committee) members will provide an update to meeting attendees on ideas to implement the Committee's goals. One of the possible activities is to host a Multicultural Fair where the public can learn more about the cultures in the Bay Area. Cultural groups would be invited to share a performance, provide information about their culture, and highlight their unique foods through food vendors. Committee members are expected to discuss and gather feedback on their tentative activity.

ENVIRONMENTAL REVIEW
The action being considered does not constitute a "project" within the meaning of the California Environmental Quality Act ("CEQA") pursuant to CEQA Guidelines section 15378(b)(5) in that it is a governmental organizational or administrative activity that will not result in direct or indirect changes in the environment.
