Power of Us Survey

The Power of Us Workforce Survey seeks to know and understand the afterschool and summer workforce. We believe that if we know more, we can do more to support you as professionals and the needs of families in accessing opportunities.  Thank you for your help better understanding Oregon’s amazing youth professionals!
