The Search Institute's Developmental Assets provide a well-researched framework for building strength and protective factors in youth, and across the lifespan! Divided into internal and external factors, each asset centers on building relationships, opportunities, values, or increasing social-emotional strengths -- all the things Upstream wants for our youth and neighbors!
To do this, Upstream invites you to explore the Developmental Assets with us via our bi-weekly e-Blasts. We started by highlighting the importance of Protective Factors, and doing an initial overview of the Developmental Assets (you can view it here). From here, we're going to explore each of the 40 assets in our e-Blasts. If you're not already on our mailing list, sign up now! If you're interested in viewing past e-Blasts related to the Assets, you can find them below:
