Community Input Survey for Parents/Caregivers & Other Adults
FOR THE VOLUNTEER CENTER SOUTH BAY-HARBOR-LONG BEACH
The Volunteer Center has been bringing youth, families and the community together through kindness, compassion and helping others for more than 50 years. Following a recent strategic planning process to determine how we could best serve the community now and in the future, we became incredibly alarmed by the unprecedented rise in anxiety, depression and suicide among our youth over the last decade.

We spoke to community members through interviews, focus groups and pilot workshops, and asked what they think is causing this crisis. The answer was unanimous: excessive screen time and social media addiction, combined with the unrelenting pressure to be perfect at all costs. Meanwhile, empathy and resilience are at an all-time low.

We're now looking for more feedback from the community. The information you provide through this survey will help us as we develop new programs and services to address these issues, so that together we can gradually reduce screen time, while increasing face-to-face connections and self-care.

Your responses will be used anonymously. If you have any questions, please contact us at info@volcenter.org or (310) 212-5009. Thank you for your input!

We are accepting responses through Friday, May 31!
