Creative Ways to Solicit Youth Input

pdf Creative Ways To Solicit Youth Input Guide

Survey fatigue was getting the best of our clients

Many programs for youth and families get buried under a seemingly bottomless pile of surveys. The funder, host school, and after-school programs each commonly require separate surveys, leading to widespread survey fatigue for kids and staff.

And get this: that’s not the only problem. Survey results rarely tell the whole story, and they leave few opportunities for clients to provide practical suggestions on how services may further improve and yield meaningful results.


Creative Ways helps you dig deeper while keeping kids engaged

We collected our favorite non-traditional ways to solicit input from youth, including interviews, collages, and song and dance routines, and complied them into one convenient booklet.

These approaches allow for more substantive back-and-forth between you and youth, and are designed for younger audiences or those with lower literacy levels.

Creative Ways provides step-by-step guidance on 16 different approaches, organized into three sections: visual, kinesthetic, and verbal.
