Several of the youth in San Pierre helped craft the questions for our Youth Survey. We received nine responses, ranging in age from 6 1/2 to 18 years old. Most of the youth enjoy hanging out with their friends and playing basketball in the park. They use the San Pierre Library often, but noted it is often closed by the time they finish their after-school activities. 100% plan to go to college. 72% plan to return to San Pierre after they finish school. They aspire to be doctors, mechanical engineers, farmers, welders, hair stylists, and child life specialists.
