April - August 2021 Tech Lab Project

Youth Views:
Aylesbury Youth Survey

This project presents an exciting opportunity for young people in Aylesbury to help Buckinghamshire Council, local charities & organisations to discover local needs.

This research project will be designed and developed by young people, to offer young people a unique opportunity to share their views via an interactive app.

Project Aims

We aim to work with educational and community business partners to identify young people who can help give clarity to what young people need in a post Covid19 society. This will inform Buckinghamshire Council’s plans for how to create better opportunities in the community and in the employment market in future.
