Survey Instructions

Thank you for facilitating a national conversation, as part of the National Dialogue on Catholic Pastoral Ministry with Youth and Young Adults. The purpose of this survey is for you to summarize the small group conversation you had with either youth, young adults, parents, or ministry leaders. While you may have specific opinions or experiences that inform your understanding of youth and young adult ministry, for the purpose of this survey, please only include things related to the conversation that you facilitated.
  • If you led multiple conversations with different groups, you will need to complete this form for each of the conversation.
  • Question 9 asks you to identify the primary audience of the conversation you are reporting on either: youth, young adults, parents, or ministry leaders. Your response to that question, will direct you to the appropriate set of questions to record what you heard. If you had a mixed group with both youth and young adults, either select the group that made up the majority of the group you led OR complete the survey twice, once selecting youth and responding to those set of questions and once selecting young adult and responding to those questions.
  • For the purpose of this dialogue, youth includes middle school to high school youth, young adults includes those beyond high school.
  • Most questions have been pre-populated with labels that include topics, issues, or categories that you can use to describe aspects of your conversation in broad strokes. You can select all of the topics, issues, or categories that were a part of your conversation. If a label is not listed that was included in your conversation, then you have the option to add one.
