Mission Australia launched its Youth Survey 2015 last month; if you are 15–19 years old you’re invited to take part in what is Australia’s largest annual survey of young people and have your voice heard.
has conducted the Youth Survey every year since 2002, and in that time many
thousands of young people have expressed their opinions and perspectives on the
issues and experiences that concern them, such as education, employment,
community activities, family and social support.
In this year’s
survey there is a special focus on community and housing, as well as other
barriers to further education and employment. The data from the survey will be
used to produce a widely distributed report, and its results inform the agendas
of governments, policymakers and community organisations.
The survey results
are also a valuable resource for young people, their families and those who support
them, including schools and communities. Mission Australia is keen to stress
that all section of the community take part in the survey, so young people in
detention and homeless youth or those at risk of homelessness will also be
encouraged to take part.
