Everyone is an Asset Builder!

About this Event

This workshop will introduce you to ideas on how each of us can contribute to the health and well-being of all our children and youth in Bartholomew County.

You will learn:

  • Detailed information about the factors that contribute to the healthy development of our young people (e.g. Developmental Assets*).
  • How you can be an active player in building these skills, experiences, and opportunities in our community.
  • Ways to join with our community members to make our county a place where young people thrive.

Who should attend?

Adults and youth who care about our young people, their future, and our community's well-being.

About Developmental Assets*

The secret to helping children and youth grow into happy, healthy, and responsible adults isn't really a secret at all. Simply make a point to connect with young people: Get to know them, talk to them, understand them, help them, and build relationships with them.

Research from the Search Institute identifies 40 Developmental Assets® that have a powerful, positive, positive impact on young people. Children and teenagers who have high levels of these assets get involved in fewer risky behaviors and are much more likely to exhibit the positive values, such has leadership, good health, diversity, and success in school.

The bad news is most young people, ages 11-18, have 20 or fewer Developmental Assets, according to Search Institute surveys.

The good news is we can change this because we all have the power to build assets in young people's lives.

Joins us and learn how at this workshop!

Online registration is required. Space limited to 25 seats.

Certificate of Completion provided for attendees.

Facilitators:

  • Susan Scott, Bartholomew Consolidated School Corporation
