Five Minutes for the Metuchen Branch YMCA?

As a member of the community, CoderDojo Metuchen is happy to help the Metuchen Branch YMCA with conducting a community needs assessment. They are interested in getting input from the entire Metuchen and Edison community in order to design services focused on the community, therefore we have agreed to distribute this survey to our Dojo attendees.

Based on this community needs assessment, the Y, in partnership with others, will design and deliver new programs and services that address critical issues in the areas of youth development, healthy living, and social responsibility. Some of these programs may be geared towards STEM education.

The link below will take you to a short online survey. Survey responses are not individually tracked and are kept confidential. The assessment should take no more than five minutes to complete, and the results will be compiled into an executive summary that will be shared with our organization and others partnering with the Y in this effort.

Take the Survey!

Should you have any questions, please contact Paul Casey, VP of Operations & Branch Development, YMCA of MEWSA, at 732-516-2089 or email at paul.casey@ymcaofmewsa.org.
