The 2020 Youth Resilience Survey results have been released, providing a valuable insight into the key strengths of Bayside's young people and resilience challenges facing them.
This year's results, whilst undertaken during COVID-19 restrictions, show an encouraging and ongoing interest from our young people in helping others and staying healthy. An area of attention that remains is the application of communication skills by young people about their concerns and seeking help.
The Youth Resilience Survey is an online survey providing a confidential environment for young people to tell us how they are feeling.
The data provides opportunity for planning programs and events to improve the resilience of young people and enhance connections with their school and our community.
We have partnered with Resilient Youth Australia and 12 local schools, surveying over 3210 students in years 3 to 12 to deliver the following results.
Resilience is the ability to draw upon the strengths within yourself and from around you to flexibly respond to life while remaining true to yourself and creating positive relationships with others.
