OCTOBER 2020
In April and May of this year, CCYP conducted a COVID-19 Needs Survey to gauge the current challenges and needs of our young workforce community on Cape Cod. A total of 130 people responded to the survey, the majority (88%) of which were age 18-44. All lived and/or worked on Cape Cod.

Those who responded to the survey had experienced loss of employment, lack of childcare options, and mental health concerns, and many other impacts stemming from the pandemic. Since May, CCYP has applied these survey findings to create new programs, share critical resources, and advocate for much-needed support for our young worker community during this extremely difficult time.

Now we need your help to continue this important work.

We've just released a FOLLOW-UP COVID-19 Needs Survey to help CCYP track how needs among our young workforce community have changed over the last few months, and to assist us in planning for 2021 programs, events, and advocacy efforts.

Help us out by completing the survey, and you could win a prize pack of gift cards from CCYP member businesses worth more than $50! Just add your email at the end of the survey to be entered in the drawing (we promise we'll only use it to notify you if you win!).
As a service to our members and the Cape Cod community at large, CCYP has compiled a series of non-partisan VOTER GUIDES for select local races in the 2020 General Election. In these four (4) online guides, we invited Cape Cod candidates running for State Senate, State Representative, Barnstable County Commissioner, and Barnstable County Assembly of Delegates to answer a short questionnaire.

The candidates' unedited responses are presented in the guides, along with their campaign website and social media handles to learn more.

Need more election details? Want to know when, how, and where to vote? Looking for more info on what a County Commissioner or Delegate does in their role? Each Voter Guide includes these basics, as well!

Our month-long Back to Business Bash: Passport to the Cape Edition has now officially come to a close, and all we can say is WOW! We had a blast celebrating with our 200+ Bash Pass-holders all September (and into October!) with virtual music performances from some great local Cape musicians, nearly $1,000 in giveaways from CCYP member businesses, and - of course - some really delicious free food from a dozen of the best restaurants and shops on the Cape!

THANK YOU to our amazing participating vendors; Bonus Offer vendors; the many donors who contributed to our giveaways; each and every Bash Pass-holder who took part in the fun; and of course our wonderful sponsors who made this COVID-inspired version of the Bash possible this year!

In response to the increased hiring needs of local employers in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, CCYP has rolled out a new Job Board Membership level. This new level of membership was designed to provide direct access to CCYP's Online Job Board - the most-visited page on CCYP's website and a critical resource for young professionals seeking employment opportunities on the Cape.

For just $60 for the whole year, local employers can post unlimited jobs to the Online Job Board and be eligible for special Job Board Highlight promotions in our monthly e-news and social media channels that are exclusive to CCYP members. Directly reach the local job seeker market on Cape Cod, and tap into some of the best talent the Cape has to offer - with no paying-per-clicks and no national-level algorithms to contend with.
