2021 Southern Indiana Youth Attitudes, Assets, and Behaviors Survey

Many organizations seek to support youth in our communities. To do so we need to better understand youth behaviors, attitudes, perceptions, and how youth experience the community. The schools use these data to design health and wellness curricula in line with local needs. Southern Indiana organizations want to use these data as a baseline against which to measure progress in improving the lives of children and youth.

The Southern Indiana Youth Assets, Attitudes, and Behaviors Survey is a project of Align Southern Indiana designed to provide youth attitudes and substance use data in years when the INYS is not administered by the state. In addition, we have added questions from the Search Institute Developmental Assets Profile in order to better understand how youth experience family and community support.

Align Southern Indiana is a partnership of organizations across Clark, Floyd, Harrison, Scott and Washington counties. The Coalition to End Abuse of Substances (CEASe) of Scott County is a partnership of schools, youth-serving organizations, health and mental health providers, the faith community, law enforcement, and the business community. CEASe needs to regularly collect and report on these data for several of the grants that fund prevention work in Scott County.

The 2021 administration of the SIYAABS in Scott County School Districts 1 & 2 is a partnership between AlignSI and CEASe of Scott County intended to try the new survey in preparation for further use across the region.
