S7| Conduct YEAH! Data Research
Community assessments can demonstrate challenges but when it comes time for the final presentation, it is helpful to have supporting evidence. Doing data research from sources like the census can help, but public data may not be enough. Surveys and interviews of neighborhood and/or school members or peers can provide quantitative (information represented by numbers) and qualitative data (information that helps tell a story). Youth participants can include the findings in their final presentation.
In this session, YEAH! club members will conduct surveys and interviews with community members and research other neighborhood and/or school community data.
