Check out results from our recent polls to see what other young people across the country think.

COVID-19

Children and youth are the generation that is most affected by the social and economic impacts of the response to COVID-19, because it is taking a toll on all aspects of their lives at a critical time in their development. They will carry the impacts of this pandemic the longest. While young people are sometimes talked about during this crisis, they are rarely listened to. We checked in with U-Reporters to find out about how they're experiencing the pandemic, and take a more in-depth look at the issues young people are facing during the lockdown period.
