Young people in the South West aged between 15 and 19 years old are being asked to make their voices heard in Australia’s biggest questionnaire gauging the views of the up and coming generation.
The 21st annual Mission Australia Youth Survey 2022 is open until August 12 and can be completed online or through participating schools and community groups.
More than 20,000 people took part in last year’s survey, which showed WA teens were most concerned with COVID, equality and the environment.
Taking 20 minutes to complete, the survey gives crucial insights into young people’s foremost aspirations, experiences, concerns and barriers to achieving their goals.
Mission Australia State Director WA Jo Sadler said young people have been forced to adapt and overcome challenges previous generations never experienced, making it even more important to hear what this group has to share from these unique experiences.
“We know from our Youth Survey that young people are extremely resilient and they care about their futures, as well as the people and world around them,” she said.
“Young people are also navigating the ever-evolving pressures of things like social media and the global pandemic, both which obviously didn’t exist when we started this survey over two decades ago.”
The survey can be completed online here.
