The Developmental Assets® Framework.   Search Institute has identified 40 positive supports and strengths that young people need to succeed. Half of the assets focus on the relationships and opportunities they need in their families, schools, and communities (external assets). The remaining assets focus on the social-emotional strengths, values, and commitments that are nurtured within young people (internal assets).  This two-hour training gives parents and other caring adults an overview of the Assets and how to build/strengthen them in youth.
