About This Event

The cumulative effect of Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) has a lifelong impact on children. As the number of ACEs increases, there is a greater likelihood of negative well-being outcomes such as obesity, depression, and other chronic conditions throughout life. 

Based on research by the Search Institutethe 40 Developmental Assets® have been identified as a series of positive experiences and qualities that help young people develop and thrive. The Developmental Assets® represent the relationships, opportunities and personal qualities that young people need to make positive choices, avoid risks and become caring, responsible adults. 


Join us for this presentation where we will: 

  • discuss the building blocks of healthy development 
  • learn about the external and internal Assets® 
  • identify how to begin using the Assets® to help youth and families address ACEs 
  • create a plan to support continued growth by building resilience.
