The Y launches National Youth Survey findings across social media

May 20, 2020 Youth Empowerment

Today, we are launching our own National Youth Survey findings across our social media platforms. The Y believes in the power of inspired young people – and we want to amplify their voices, particularly around their concerns.

We know that young people in Australia as a collective are experiencing some of the most significant immediate and long-term impacts of COVID-19, on their lives, their education, employment and future potential.

To inform what content and resources young people want and need at this time, the Y NSW led a national survey of close to 300 young people (13-29). Thanks to everyone across the Movement who shared this with your young people, and all of the young employees who shared their insights.

On our socials over the next few days we will share some thoughts and feelings from youth across the nation living through COVID-19, and get cracking on content that has youth voice at its core! Listening and amplifying youth voice is a huge part of #YWeAreHere. We believe in the power of inspired young people and we are working tirelessly to keep them inspired through these troubled times.
