If you're 15 to 19 years old, living in Australia and want to have a say about the things that affect you...here is your chance! Mission Australia's Youth Survey is the largest survey of its kind in Australia. Government, academics and communities all use it to develop policies and programs for young Australians. The survey has been conducted annually since 2002 and aims to identify both the values and concerns of young people.
The survey will close on Monday 31st July 2017.
