The West Van for Youth coalition is conducting an anonymous survey to gather views on youth substance use from families and businesses in the 98660, 98661, 98665 and 98663 ZIP codes.
Responses will be kept confidential and reported only as aggregated data, according to a coalition press release.
The coalition, established in 2011, is made up of students, individuals and public and private agencies, promotes healthy choices aimed at reducing substance misuse among youth. A community member who takes the survey can decline to answer any question or stop the survey at any time. The survey takes about 10 minutes to complete, and is open until Dec. 13.
In late October, coalition volunteers adorned trees and lamp posts in downtown Vancouver and west-side neighborhoods with red ribbons for a youth substance prevention campaign; planted 950 red tulip bulbs in downtown Vancouver and west-side neighborhoods; and volunteered to decorate the town with prevention messaging.
