1) East Prince Women's Information Centre Survey and Community Consultations for The CONNECT Project

Please share the link below. We are wanting as many people as possible to answer the survey.
This survey is part of 
a 2-year project funded by Status of Women Canada. The East Prince Women's Information Centre is coordinating it. The Province of PEI, Interministerial Women's Secretariat, City of Summerside, Women's Network PEI, Holland College, Family Violence Prevention PEI, Girl Guides of PEI, Timeless Technologies and Sweet Spot Marketing, are the partners of this project.
This survey is being conducted as part of the needs assessment. 
The project's goal is to prevent and eliminate cyberviolence against girls and young women. 

This project will engage PEI youth and their communities to prevent and eliminate cyberviolence.  It will work in collaboration with community stakeholders to increase their ability to identify and respond to the specific needs of young women and girls, and a community online network will be created to share information and strategies. In partnership with community stakeholders, young women and girls will carry out strategies to prevent and eliminate this form of gender-based violence in our community. We are engaging male youth also.
Cyberviolence:  Any form of violence that brings harm to an individual deliberately using electronic means; including, but not limited to: online luring, stalking, harassment, abuse, trafficking, sexual exploitation and bullying.

There are 3 different surveys, please click on the one that best suits you: 1) youth  2) parent/guardian or 3) community / service provider  -  they can be anonymous - takes less than 5 minutes.
