Subject/Title: Results of Youth Interest Survey and request for direction
Submitted by: Craig D. Bronzan, Director of Parks and Recreation
Staff Report by: Poldina Scherff, Recreation Services Supervisor
Approved by: John Stevenson, City Manager
The City of Brentwood’s Youth Commission will provide results from their youth surveys, while requesting the City Council’s support in developing a Youth Master Plan that will address the major issues which were identified by our community’s youth.
The City of Brentwood Youth Commission was established by City Council in April 1999. In June of 2000, bylaws were revised by the youth commissioners and approved by City Council. The Youth Commission developed three “Youth Interest Surveys” that were approved by City Council in March 2001. Each survey was composed of questions geared towards specific grade levels to obtain accurate information. The surveys were distributed to Edna Hill, William B. Bristow and Liberty High School in Fall 2001, with results compiled in Spring/Summer 2002.
After distributing the surveys to various schools, the results were tabulated by the Commission and recorded (see attached). The Commission reviewed the results and a consensus was made as to what the major issues were for each school. Our next step was to develop an outline of a Youth Master Plan to address these issues. The Youth Master Plan would accomplish, as a start, four major goals: creating a community “Job Resource List” for teens between the ages of 13 through 19 years of age, creating a “Teen Crisis and Information Referral Listing” card, moving forward to improve the community in the direction to accommodate the needs of our youth, develop a Youth Forum to open communication between the youth of our community with the Brentwood Police and the Parks and Recreation Departments. Youth Commission members will be giving a short PowerPoint presentation and request permission to move forward with the development of a Youth Master Plan to accomplish the above-mentioned goals.
Costs will be covered by approved Youth Commission budget.
