"YouthTruth data is a very powerful resource to start conversations and motivate change."
Dr. Jones, YouthTruth Principal, Atlanta, GA
“When we started this process, I didn’t realize YouthTruth would be so action-oriented. This data is incredibly helpful.”
"I’m very happy that our school participated in YouthTruth…it was a good experience, and I think our voices were heard."
"You actually get to see the data, and you see the issues in your school and you’re able to go to your administrators and address them."
"We felt we should be heard, we deserve to be heard. Now we’re getting the opportunity to be heard and to be accounted for."
“The information gathered through YouthTruth really opened our eyes to what students were experiencing (or not experiencing) within our school … this survey is certainly useful to any school community.”
Mr. Logan, Principal, Durham, NC
