CCYP Releases Survey Results And Priority Plan

BARNSTABLE – Cape Cod Young Professionals has unveiled its new three-year Strategic Plan, as well as the results from its recent completed Community Survey which played a major part. 

CCYP’s CEO Lauren Barker gives a quick overview of the organization’s mission.  “Promoting Cape Cod as a vibrant place for young people to live and work.  There are ways that you can become more connected and develop a professional network.  There are lots of other opportunities as well.”   

The community-wide survey’s purpose was to learn what the top needs of Cape Cod’s 45-and-under workforce and residents are.  The feedback helped craft the plan’s priorities, such as advocating for policies and resources which will enhance quality of life, opportunities for leadership and career development. 

The group has also made sustaining their growth a primary issue. 

Barker says that the survey showed that housing is a big concern.  “It came back as the top need.  I do think that CCYP has a specific role when it comes to the subject of housing professionals and young people on the Cape.” 

It was taken as a follow-up to 2014’s “Shape the Cape” Survey, and involved 400 people.

Survey results and an overview of the resulting Strategic Plan can be found on the CCYP website at
