The Loudoun County Advisory Commission on Youth (ACOY) conducted a survey in the fall of 2022 for youth in Loudoun County ages 13-22 and their parents/guardians.
The anonymous survey covered four topic areas: activities and interests; mental health and stress management; online access and activity; and drug and alcohol use.
The results of the survey will be used to inform ACOY's annual report to the Loudoun County Board of Supervisors.
In 2019, the Loudoun County Board of Supervisors launched a new initiative called “Youth Net” to ensure there were ample programs and services available to help Loudoun’s youth thrive. The goal was to establish a feedback mechanism to help county leaders stay current on trends in youth behaviors, interests and needs. This survey is a continuation of those efforts and is planned to be an annual activity conducted by ACOY.
