Burnsville Youth Needs Assessment 2013Burnsville Youth Needs Assessment: Executive Summary 46 pages...

Background:The City of Burnsville received a grant from Youthprise to complete a community-wide needs assessment for youth in Burnsville. The last study was in 1995, called Partnerships for Tomorrow, which identified the need for increased programming for youth. Out of the work, THE GARAGE was opened in 1999, serving youth grades 6-12. The City of Burnsville determined it was time to update the work and see where the current gaps were regarding youth services. It was hypothesized that there is need to expand programs to grades K-12, offer more
extensive programming, including after school hours activities, evening hours, and possibly serving meals. Information obtained from the
Youth Needs Assessment will help the City of Burnsville to develop strategies to create a comprehensive for Burnsville youth.

The Youth Needs Assessment Research took place from April-June 2013. Wendy Lutter, of Lutter Marketing LLC, was the consultant who led the project.
