The SEEP Network, 2009 - (Technical Note) "The process of conducting market assessments strongly benefits from incorporating the perspective of the youth to understand the complete picture of what products, services, and skills are most in demand. This can help programs determine which opportunities are the most promising and which are the best fit for young people, given their existing skills and preferences. These market assessments that involve young people also open up a window into the youth market and formal and informal labor markets. They generally pursue one of two main avenues: surveying youth as clients, and/or including youth in assessment—participating on design teams, performing data analysis, or collecting data."
