It's an opportunity to hear from young people in Waterloo Region. 

The Children and Youth Planning Table is launching a Youth Impact Survey on Friday.

It was developed through a partnership with the Canadian Index of Wellbeing, UNICEF Canada, the Ontario Trillium Foundation, and the Kitchener Waterloo Community Foundation.

Waterloo Region was the first community in Canada to pilot phase one of the survey in July of last year. 

The second phase aims to hear from 1,000 youth from diverse backgrounds, between the ages of nine and 18. It will involve four communities: Waterloo Region, Ottawa, Halton, and Tri-Counties in Nova Scotia. 

The goal of the endeavour is to gauge well-being among our younger population and gather information to help provide better supports, services, and programs. 

Those interested can click here, but the survey will not be available to view until Friday.
