Coquitlam youth can have a say about how they play.
The city is asking its tweens, teens and young adults to complete a survey. There’s one for kids ages 11 to 18, and another for young adults 19 to 24 years to provide feedback.
The city wants to know their thoughts on drop-in or registered programs at its recreation facilities, park amenities and activities, and about volunteering.
“The questions aim to provide some insight into strengths in these areas as well as values and feelings of participants,” said a city press release.
The survey is part of an update to Coquitlam’s youth strategy, which was last done in 2006.
This is the first phase of the update; the second will take place in the fall when the city will be looking to hear from youths and from adults who support youth at home, at school and in the community.
The survey and more information on it are available at coquitlam.ca/youthplan.
To entice youth to participate in the survey, the city will give one lucky respondent a $100 gift card to Coquitlam Centre.
