Your input will help shape a vibrant and resilient future for our region!

Cape Cod, MA – CCYP has launched a 2023 Shape the Cape Survey which aims to: collect insights on key challenges that impact Cape Codders’ ability to live, work, and thrive in our region and identify innovative opportunities to support and sustain our workforce and our community into the future.

The Shape the Cape Survey covers a wide range of topics focused on challenges to and opportunities for retaining and sustaining Cape Cod’s young workforce and working families. Through the survey, respondents will have the opportunity to share their experiences and provide insights on key issues that impact our year-round workforce, including housing and early childhood education, job and professional advancement opportunities, remote work, technology, healthcare, and infrastructure.

The survey also provides an opportunity for respondents to share what they see as the most significant impediments to workforce recruitment and retention as well as creative strategies for ensuring a vibrant and resilient future for our region.

The survey results will be presented at CCYP’s Shape the Cape Summit on March 28, 2023, and a summary of the results will also be made available on CCYP’s website to provide important data for local and regional decision-making.

“Our region’s year-round workforce and working families on Cape Cod face unique challenges that were exacerbated by the economic impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Kristen Vose Clothier, CEO of CCYP. “Data collected through the 2023 Shape the Cape Survey will allow CCYP and our community partners across the Cape to develop innovative strategies and target resources to address priority needs and identify new opportunities for regional collaboration.”

This is CCYP's 2nd Shape the Cape Survey; over 3,000 people responded in 2014 to the first survey.

All Cape Codders are encouraged to share input through the 2023 Shape the Cape Survey. As an additional incentive to participate, those who fill out the survey may choose to enter a drawing to win a giveaway package valued at $1,000+ loaded with gifts that celebrate Cape Cod businesses and nonprofits. The winner will be drawn at CCYP’s 2023 Shape the Cape Summit.
