The 2015 Surrey Youth Vital Signs Project uses a combination of statistical sources and public opinion data as the basis for the information contained in this report. The purpose of the research was to ascertain where Surrey is doing well and where it can improve in thirteen important dimensions of community. Specific indicators were designed to measure the overall success or failure of the community in integrating and nurturing a strong sense of community amongst the youth of Surrey.
The sub-focus of this project was to investigate youth experiences in Surrey during their first 5 years of transition from high school into post-secondary education or the workforce.
