Based on research by the Search Institute, the 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.
In this workshop, participants will learn about the Assets framework and the powerful role of individual asset builders in the lives of youth, as well as explore ideas on how to build and promote the Assets in the community.
