CCYP has released an Executive Summary of compiled results from the organization’s recent COVID-19 Needs Survey. View the results on our website here .

CCYP’s COVID-19 Needs Survey was designed to collect data regarding the impact of the pandemic specifically on Cape Cod’s young, working-age adult community, ages 18 to 45. Survey respondents shared information on the critical needs and challenges they are facing as a result of the pandemic and provided testimonials from their first-hand experiences.

Results from the survey will be used to drive CCYP's advocacy, programming, and strategic partnerships to ensure that Cape Cod's young adults can not only survive, but thrive, here.

To raise awareness of how our young worker community on the Cape is being impacted, CCYP has begun compiling the many anonymous testimonials shared through this survey - read through them now on our blog .

CCYP has been closely monitoring Town Meeting and election dates as towns across the Cape navigate postponements and cancellations in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic. To make sure these important town-wide events make it onto your calendar, we've created a couple of handy graphics (below) and a comprehensive list of both Town Meeting and election info by town. Each listing includes website links where you can find additional info, like your Town Meeting warrant (agenda), polling locations and dates, and more.

Why do we share information on Town Meeting and elections? Because participating in your Town Meeting and voting in your town election are two of the most effective ways to have your voice heard on issues that impact your daily life, right here on the Cape.
