Search Institute and America's Promise Survey Overview

The Town of Manchester, wants to ensure that its Children Youth and Family Master Plan is representative of the insights and experiences of as many Manchester young people as possible. A proven way to ensure that the insights of the town's young people are part of the Plan's development is to administer a Search Institute/America's Promise Survey. The survey was administered in October 2008 to a randomly selected number of students in grades six through twelve in both the public and private schools within the town. The results from the survey have been received from Search Institute and put into the report that follows. This report provides the citizens creating the plan's recommendations with information that will ensure the voices of our young people are included throughout the plan. The survey was developed as a joint venture between Search Institute ( and America's Promise and is titled The Survey of Student Resources and Assets.
