Youth Health - Youth Research - Youth Engagement

McCreary Centre Society is a non-government not-for-profit committed to improving the health of BC youth through research, evaluation and community based projects. Our vision is that all youth are supported to be healthy and connected.

Hiring: Youth Health Ambassadors

McCreary Centre Society is hiring youth in Grades 8–11 to become Youth Health Ambassadors! Youth Health Ambassadors will be part of a team of youth across BC who are hosting conversations with their peers about the health issues that are important to them. Information from these conversations will ensure the health issues that are important to young people in your school and community are included in our upcoming provincial survey, the 2023 BC Adolescent Health Survey.

Study details and access to surveys

The Youth Research Academy is surveying BC youth aged 18 to 20 who are either currently in government care (or an alternatives to government care such as on a Youth Agreement) or have aged out within the past year.

The survey takes about 20 minutes to complete, and youth receive a $20 e-gift card for completing the survey. Youth who complete the survey have the option to complete further surveys about every six months after that and receive a $20 e-gift card for each time point completed.
