All Saskatchewan schools and school divisions or authorities are welcome to participate in the SAYCW Thriving Youth, Thriving Communities Survey, which is for students in Grades 7 to 12.
We understand that classroom time is precious, and that there are many surveys out there. The difference with the SAYCW Thriving Youth, Thriving Communities Survey is that the data is being collected for use by schools and communities themselves, first. This means that each participating school and school division or authority will receive a local-level report that outlines the health issues and opportunities specific to their youth. Most importantly, the knowledge to action model used by SAYCW allows our staff to provide support to communities to learn about their students through the reports, connect them to partners and resources, and support them in acting on the opportunities they feel are important for their school and community.
We also strive to ensure that participation in the survey is easy for schools. This means working with the Saskatchewan Education Leadership Unit (SELU) to implement the survey at a time and in a way that is convenient for each school, be it online or on paper.
If you are interested in having your school or school division/authority benefit from participation in the SAYCW Thriving Youth, Thriving Communities Survey, contact our Project Manager.
Support youth and community well-being through the collaborative action of community partners working together. Through evidence, tools and resources, SAYCW supports stakeholders to turn the knowledge gained through the youth health survey into health promoting action.
SAYCW 2016 Provincial Youth Health Report
This brief questionnaire seeks feedback from schools, school divisions, and other Saskatchewan stakeholders on the SAYCW Youth Health Survey 2015, the results reports, and the Healthy Schools and Communities grant. We hope to learn from you to improve SAYCW’s work in conducting our next Thriving Youth, Thriving Communities Survey in 2019, preparing the results reports, and translating the knowledge into health promoting action.
