Youth Risk behavior Survey (YRBS)
The Youth Risk Behavior Survey is administered every two years to grades 6 through 12 in the Lodi School District. All school districts in Columbia County, as well as a majority of school districts around the state, participate in this survey. The YRBS allows us to get insight into the behaviors and perceptions or our youth. This information is used by the Lodi Community Action Team and the School District of Lodi to develop programs and opportunities for our students and community to better understand and deal with the issues facing our teens.
In 2013, the first Community Survey was administered by the Lodi Community Action Team. The survey was completed by over 600 individuals from around our community. The Community Survey in conjunction with the YRBS allows us to have a better picture of the issues, perceptions and beliefs of both our students and community members.
The LCAT Speakers Bureau has the ability to present on a wide range of topics for your group or organization. Some of the topics are:
- Youth Leadership
- Drug Awareness
- Beverage Server Training
