The Multnomah Youth Commission is a volunteer group of young people, ages 13 to 21, who make nonbinding recommendations to the City of Portland and government of Multnomah County on behalf of youth.

The commission's sustainability subcommittee, working with the office of former Portland Mayor Tom Potter, served as the lead advocates for creating YouthPass, a program funded by the state's Business Energy Tax Credit that offered all Portland Public Schools high schoolers and alternative students a free all-zone TriMet pass during the school year.

In 2011, the same committee worked with the office of Mayor Sam Adams in an attempt to save the program from elimination.
