Youth Meaningful Work Survey


At the YMCA, we dream of a world where all young people can access decent jobs and meaningful work. To achieve that dream, we need to understand the views and experiences of young people.

The YMCA is delighted to launch the “Youth Meaningful Work” survey, designed by young people for young people. We are hoping to reach 50,000 youth worldwide.

What the survey involves:

  • The survey asks young people aged 18-35 all around the world what meaningful work means to them, and their hopes, fears, needs, expectations, and how ready they feel for work in the future.
  • The survey is open until Friday 15 December 2023 and takes about 10-15 minutes to complete.
  • It is provided in English, French, Spanish, German, Portuguese, Arabic, Russian, Japanese, Chinese and Hindi.

Why have a survey:
By hearing the voices of thousands of young people across the globe, the survey will provide a strong evidence base to help design solutions for young people, with young people.

We need your help:
For our survey to be successful, we need your help in making sure we hear from as many young people from diverse backgrounds as possible across the world.

Complete the survey if you are aged between 18-35 – we want to hear about your career aspirations and experiences, and what you might need to achieve your aspirations. The categories of young people that World YMCA is intentionally wanting to ensure are represented in the survey results are: People with disabilities, refugees, people with mental health issues, 2SLGBTQIA+ people, unhoused people, Indigenous people, young mothers/parents, children in care, youth who have been in trouble with the law, etc.
