It is said that every difficulty has an opportunity. Since the first wave of Covid-19, Planet Youth has adjusted our tools and support to ensure our partners can continue primary prevention work in their communities.
Implementing the Planet Youth survey now gives our partners the opportunity add COVID-19 related questions to the questionnaire which provides important information on the well-being of youth and their changing environment during these unusual circumstances.
Additionally, Planet Youth created an online at-home survey protocol to allow for surveying of fully remote students. It is important to note that at-home surveys typically generate lower response rates than in school surveys, so steps were taken to address these challenges with altered processes and setup of the questionnaire.
What changes have been made to the Planet Youth protocol?
The questionnaire has been shortened, closer to the core questions of the Planet Youth methodology to increase the likelihood of a high response.
A follow-up process has been added where Planet Youth sends back information on response rates during the survey period.
Planet Youth provides a step-by-step guide and an online seminar on the whole process.
