City seeks input from youth
January 19, 2017 / For Immediate Release
AIRDRIE, ALBERTA – The City of Airdrie has commissioned a research study to engage youth in identifying the needs and wants of youth living in the Airdrie community.
“In 2009, City Council approved the first of three phases of the City of Airdrie’s Youth Strategy. The purpose of which was to guide the city toward greater youth friendliness. This set forth a vision that allowed the City of Airdrie to partner with the young people of this community,” says Clay Aragon, Team Leader, Community Development and Social Planning.
“As the City has grown and flourished, there is an identified need to engage directly with youth and incorporate their voices into the data collected and contribute their thoughts and experience to the Youth Strategy. An outcome of this approach will be to help support young people in Airdrie to be equipped to build a strong and sustainable community now and into adulthood.”
The survey will also help the City and our community organizations and agencies to work together with youth in understanding the needs in Airdrie and developing programs, services and opportunities in the years ahead.
“We encourage youth 12 - 24 complete the survey by February 3, 2017 and help us better understand how this issue impacts our city.”
The survey will take just a few minutes to complete and all responses are anonymous and confidential.
