Voices Study: Survey of youth ages 10 to 17
Four in ten young people have doubts about whether they will be able to realize the American Dream because they are stressed, concerned about their personal safety and confused about what choices to make to protect their health and well being, according to a survey from America's Promise. Harris Interactive surveyed 1,278 people ages ten to 17 for the 'Voices Study,' which focused on the resources children feel they need in their lives. Urban, suburban and rural children were polled, and the majority said they believe in the American dream but many expressed doubt that they will be able to achieve it. Just Kids Inc. supported the 'Voices Study,' which is available online.
