Annual Youth Survey
Here’s your opportunity to have your say.
Mission Australia is currently running a national survey that gives a voice to the concerns, values and thoughts of young people between ages of 15-19 across Australia and they would love your participation.
In 2016, the Youth Survey focuses on social inclusion/exclusion from the perspective of young people, including participation in education, employment and community, family and social support, perceptions about general wellbeing, values and concerns, and sources of support.
Outcomes of the survey is important for driving change across all levels of government as well as by NGOs and youth organisations, schools, communities and parents. Interestingly, the Youth Survey last year found that respondents planning to enter vocational education through TAFE or an apprenticeship were more likely to feel that a lack of jobs would be a barrier to their study and work goals, were more likely to be looking for work, placed greater importance on getting a job and highlighted employment as a key issue of national importance in greater numbers than those who did not plan to enter vocational education.
The survey has ethics approval from the Victorian Department of Education and Training and only takes about 15 minutes to complete.
Take the survey before 22 August at www.missionaustralia.com.au/youthsurvey.
