2023 Loudoun County Youth Survey
The Loudoun County Advisory Commission on Youth (ACOY) is conducting a survey to gather information that will help inform county leaders when making decisions about services and programs designed to meet the needs of young people in the community.
The survey is intended for parents of elementary, middle and high school-aged students, and youth in middle and high school. The survey is expected to take about ten minutes to complete. The survey covers four topic areas:
- Activities and interests.
- Drug and alcohol use.
- Mental health and stress management.
- Online access and activity.
Responses are anonymous. Participants are not required to provide any individually identifying information such as their name, home address, birth date, IP address, etc.
The survey is open through Tuesday, December 5, 2023. Information gathered from the survey will be used to inform ACOY's “State of Loudoun Youth” annual report to the Loudoun County Board of Supervisors.

The most recent survey conducted by ACOY was 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 were used to inform ACOY's annual State of the Youth of Loudoun County (PDF) report to the Loudoun County Board of Supervisors, which was presented in April 2023.
This survey was first opened in 2019 as part of the Board of Supervisors’ initiatives involving youth, which, in part, aim to ensure there are effective programs and services available to help Loudoun’s youth thrive. The survey is intended to be an annual feedback mechanism to help county leaders stay current on trends in youth behaviors, interests and needs.
