Pilot Young Adult Survey Boston Public Schools (BATA)

2013 Preliminary Statistics from BATA Young Adult Survey


These findings are based on a brief, anonymous, survey of health conditions, health seeking behavior, health care needs, major life events and stressful life experiences, social relationships, and attitudes about fatherhood among a group of young adult male students (ages 21 years old and older) at the Boston Adult Technical Academy (BATA). Data was collected in 2013.

BATA is a part of the Boston Public Schools. We intend to use this pilot data to create a trauma-informed young men's health curriculum with components on preparation for adulthood and fatherhood.

The study helped inform a program to help young men prepare for adult roles and address history of trauma and estrangement.
