Qld's youth wanted for national survey
TO coincide with National Youth Week, Mission Australia is calling on young Queenslanders to help highlight important issues in their lives by having their say in the charity’s 2010 National Youth Survey.
Australia’s largest annual check on the views, concerns and values of young people between the ages of 11-24.
In launching the 2010 survey, Mission Australia’s Queensland state director Tony Stevenson said it gave young Australians a voice across a range of issues with the information being used to help community groups and governments plan and develop youth services.
“This year the survey has some additional questions around what young people see as the main issues in Australia today, how optimistic they feel about the future and what should be done
about the things that concern them,” Mr Stevenson said.
“The results of the survey assist Mission Australia, other agencies, governments at all levels – as well as schools, parents and families – to better understand young people.”
Mission Australia’s 2010 National Survey of Young Australians can be completed online at www.missionaustralia.com.au/youthsurvey.
It is also available at all Mission Australia services, secondary schools, TAFE facilities and libraries nationwide.
The survey closes on Friday, July 2, with the results to be published later in the year.
