09 Oct Youth Concept Mapping

The Wimmera Regional Sports Assembly are looking for participants to complete a two part concept mapping exercise with La Trobe University as part of the evaluation of the current Regional Sport Program.

The features of a sport program I would really like to participate in are…

They will have one week to record their response(s). The activity is expected to take 5-10 minutes.

    • Participants will be contacted by CSSI in mid-late October, to group the cleaned list of statement and rate these. Again they will have one week to record their responses. The activity is expected to take 30-45 minutes.
    • Upon completion of both activities, CSSI will send participants a $30 Ultimate Teens Gift Card as a thank you for their time (less than an hour commitment). CSSI will contact participants to get their postal address and will send (registered post) directly to each young person.

 

The criteria for selection is:

    • They must be aged 14-17 during September-November 2019
    • They must agree to take part and commit to both concept mapping activities scheduled to take place in October (around an hour of their time in total)

This may include sport, exercise and brisk walking or cycling for recreation or to get to and from places.
