Ann Arbor Area Community Foundation

Needs Assessment

The original W.K. Kellogg Foundation grant that established AAACF’s Youth Council in 1989 requires that Youth Council conduct a needs assessment every three years to identify the concerns and needs of our community's youth.

The purpose of the Needs Assessment Survey is to gain a better and deeper understanding of the issues that are of greatest concern to young people in our community. Survey results help shape the Youth Council’s funding priorities and identify possible opportunities to effect change. The Youth Council also feels that the Needs Assessment Survey helps to give a real and credible voice to the population it is trying to serve.

The most recent Needs Assessment Survey was completed in December of 2016.
