This report presents an analysis of the Youth Needs, Your Voice Survey data. The Youth Needs, Your Voice Survey was developed for the purpose of better understanding the mental health needs and resources available to youth and young adults in the Anchorage Municipality, especially in the face of concurrent social issues in 2020, such as the Covid-19 pandemic, social distancing and online education, and the institutional racism highlighted by George Floyd’s arrest and death and the related protests across the country. The intent of the survey was for survey results to inform Spirit of Youth’s direction of youth programming with specified Alaska Department of Health and Social Services grant funds.
