Your feedback is important to us!

The New American Welcome Center at the University Y is gathering community input from local businesses, community groups and individuals to assist in the development of a county-wide welcoming plan. This survey will take approximately 5 minutes to complete and can be taken anonymously.

The primary purpose of this survey is to identify and understand the challenges facing employers as our community welcomes a growing foreign-born population and workforce. Your responses will help us identify what initiatives, resources and policies can expand our local economy, strengthen our workforce and increase employment opportunities.  For more information please contact Mike Doyle at mike@universityymca.org.
