Developmental assets are the positive values, relationships, and experiences that help bring out the best in children and teenagers. Developmental assets are building blocks of helathy development that are essential for youth's successful growth.
Reserach by Search Institute has identified 40 concrete, positive experiences and qualities, called developmental assets, which have considerable influence on young people's lives.
Data collected from Search Institute have continually shown that the more developmental assets youth gain, the better their chances of succeeding in school and becoming happy, contributing members of their community.
Project RISE is pleased to present their quarterly newsletter with great information on developmental assets in a fun and easy to learn format. Each newsletter presents ideas on how to increase assets in young people. Please click below to view our latest edition and to learn more about the 40 developmental assets.
