WA Hmong Youth Engagement Survey

Greetings!
With the vast growing population of Hmong youth in the greater-Seattle area, we would greatly appreciate if you could take the Hmong Youth Engagement Survey below.The purpose of this survey is to gather information and data to better understand and meet the needs of the Hmong youth in our community. We hope as a community to provide more resources, opportunities and a voice for the Hmong youth.Participants in the survey must identify as a Hmong person,  be 25 years or younger and live in the state of Washington. We will be giving away two Hmong wooden chains from the project Street Stops and Mountain Tops to participants of the survey. For more information about Street Stops to Mountain Tops, visit http://streetstops.org/.For any questions for concerns, please contact Kabao Xiong at kabaov.xiong@gmail.com.
