Can the survey be customized?

Agencies can re-name the survey, add personalized examples that capture their organizational practices, and include lists of specific program offerings.

The survey is available in English or Spanish.

Agencies may add a few additional questions they would like to ask youth.
These additional questions will be included in the YDSI Survey and results will be provided back to agencies as part of the reporting provided by YDSI researchers.

The survey should be used in its entirety to provide an accurate assessment of program quality within each agency. However, a few items that ask for information about participants’ age and background are optional.
