Looking for youth workers and youth to help administer the 2023 BC HYS

We are rolling out the Homeless Youth Health and Wellness Survey (BC HYS), a survey of young people (aged 12-27) who are homeless, unstably housed, or at risk of homelessness, in communities across the province. We are looking for youth workers and young people to help with survey administration from February to April 2023. No research experience is required and all training will be provided.

This is a survey that has been developed by youth with homelessness experience in partnership with service providers from across BC.

Your role will be to:

  • Work with community agencies to organize opportunities for youth to fill out a survey
  • Answer any questions youth might have about the survey
  • Hand out honoraria to youth who complete a survey
  • Help to pull out key findings from the data, and disseminate findings (optional)

To learn more about the youth worker position, please see the recruitment flyer here, or the job description here.

To learn more about the youth researcher position, please see the flyer here, or the job description here.

You can also see the findings from the last time this survey was conducted, in 2014, online here.
