Planning for the next Youth2000 survey!
Planning is underway for the next Youth2000 survey! The Youth2000 surveys are nationally representative youth health and well-being surveys of secondary school students and students in alternative education settings and teen pregnancy units, which have been undertaken since 2000. To date over 25,000 young people from throughout New Zealand have participated in these surveys. They have been instrumental to policy makers, clinicians, youth workers, educators, families and communities in understanding the health and well-being issues of the current generation of young people.
The Youth2000 surveys have been guided by positive youth development principals which highlight the importance of context, culture and environments that nurture and shape the well-being of young people. This workshop will explore and reflect on the benefits and gaps of previous Youth2000 surveys, how they can be best utilised for the benefit of youth, and what areas should be explored in future surveys.
