The 40 Developmental Assets Approach

Research by Search Institute has identified 40 concrete, positive experiences and qualities – “developmental assets” – that have a tremendous influence on young people’s lives; and they are things that people from all walks of life can help to nurture. Research shows that the 40 developmental assets help young people make wise decisions, choose positive paths, and grow up competent, caring, and responsible. The assets are grouped into eight categories: The asset framework is a framework that includes everyone. Families, schools, neighborhoods, and all organizations, institutions, and individuals in a community can play a role in building assets for youth. This program introduces the assets, shows their power and presence in young people’s lives, and gives concrete suggestions for what you can do to build assets.
