Search Institute: Developmental assets: An investment in youth
In an effort to identify the elements of a strength-based approach to healthy development, Search Institute developed the framework of developmental assets. This framework identifies 40 critical factors for young people's growth and development. When drawn together, the assets offer a set of benchmarks for positive child and adolescent development. The assets clearly show important roles that families, schools, congregations, neighborhoods, youth organizations, and others in communities play in shaping young people's lives. Search Institute is an independent, nonprofit, nonsectarian organisation in North America whose mission is to advance the wellbeing of adolescents and children by generating knowledge and promoting its application. Their site also contains a page about the Healthy Communities - Healthy Youth Initiatives group.
