Mayor Michael A. Nutter has appointed Jamira Burley, former chairperson of the Philadelphia Youth Commission, as executive director. The Youth Commission is a panel of 21 young Philadelphians between the ages of 12 and 23 appointed by the Mayor and City Council.

 

Youth Commission members represent the diversity and voices of young Philadelphians. The Commission offers recommendations and advice to the Mayor and City Council on legislation and policies that affect youth and young adults.

 

“I am delighted to welcome Jamira as executive director of the Youth Commission,” said Mayor Michael A. Nutter. “She is a role model in her family and throughout the community. I am confident that she will represent the values and priorities of Philadelphia’s young people.”

 

Burley was formerly a national coordinator at the National Peace Alliance and Student Peace Alliance where she helped to implement youth violence prevention and intervention programming. She also served as a board member of the Daily News People’s Editorial Board, as a fellow for the Center for Progressive Leadership and Young People For, and as the Governor’s Appointee for the Commission on Children and Families.

“I would like to thank Mayor Nutter for offering me this opportunity to serve the young people of Philadelphia,” said Ms. Burley. “I am looking forward to collaborating with the diverse groups throughout the city who work every day to improve the lives of the young people who live, work and attend school in our city.”
