1. What is the Youth Needs and Assets Assessment?Permanent link to What is the Youth Needs and Assets Assessment?
In 2019, Council initiated the Youth Needs and Assets Assessment (YNAA). The YNAA explored existing opportunities for youth and young adults in the County between the ages of 13-29, while identifying areas for improvement.
Through the assessment, Strathcona County youth and community partners identified six priority areas: Communication and Engagement; Collaboration; Mental Health; Gathering Spaces; Transportation; and Affordability.
The YNAA report also proposed that a community-led, collaborative strategy be developed to guide the implementation of recommendations in the six priority areas.
