2010 annual survey results

The Australian Clearinghouse for Youth Studies (ACYS) would like to thank everyone who kindly gave their time to participate in the 2010 ACYS annual survey and also to those who assisted in promoting the survey.

ACYS received a record number of responses - over 370, which is an increase on all previous years with the closest number of responses being 277 in 2008.

The information gathered from annual surveys is invaluable, especially the thoughtful comments respondents provided, so again thank you for assisting ACYS in reflecting upon, and improving, the services to the sector. 

ACYS would like to congratulate the survey winners! Dean Hardisty from Victoria won a copy of Sounds of then, sounds of now: popular music in Australia and Elise Barton from Queensland won a copy of Youth work and social diversity.
