Voices: A Study of Youth in Peel

With the support of the Dufferin Peel Catholic District School Board (DPCDSB) and the Peel District School Board (PDSB), PCYI undertook a large mixed methods research project with youth across Peel Region to better understand their experiences, interests and attitudes about recreational, after school and out of school activities. The research includes a randomized survey (n=2,187) of secondary school students and focus groups with 149 youth. The overall response rate was 80%. The research allows us to take a look at what youth in Peel do with their time, what they would like to be doing, and the barriers that they face to better engage young people in activities.
