Vital Signs 2015
SurreyCares’ Youth Vital Signs 2015 focuses exclusively on discovering the experiences of youth aged 12 to 24 who live in Surrey.
With this report, we strive to provide information to philanthropists, grant-makers leaders, program directors, and policy-makers in Surrey that helps them select, craft, and fund intelligent policy and program plans that meet the current and future needs of youth.
Please contact our office for more information on how these youth fund options might be a good fit for you and your business or organization to use as a way of supporting Surrey youth both now and in the future.

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.
