Join Us in New Jersey This January

Implementing a strength-based approach in your work with young people starts with a positive point of view. That point of view—readily found in the Developmental Assets—sees young people as resources to be celebrated and supported, rather than problems to be fixed.

If you are ready to sharpen your strength-based practices, please join us January 15th and 16th in Union, NJ, for Essentials of Asset Building.

Senior Trainer Jim Conway brings the Developmental Assets to life through lively group interactions and his deep knowledge of what really works to help kids succeed. Listen to Jim talk about the workshop in this video:

If you are new to the Developmental Assets framework, this two-day workshop will introduce you to the basics of looking at young people through a positive lens. If you're familiar with the assets, you'll find ample material to refresh and renew your skills.

Essentials of Asset Building for Trainers and Facilitators
January 15-16, 2015, 8:30 to 4:00 p.m.
Kean University
Kean Hall, Room 127, Union, NJ 07083

Hi Julie,
Much of the work that is done in the positive youth development field—whether it’s in communities, schools, organizations, or government—is funded by grants. We do not offer grants or scholarships, however, we have provided the resources on our website to help you craft effective grant proposals that use the latest research from Search Institute.

We will continue to offer the Essentials workshop and other open enrollment workshops across the country every year. Please sign up to receive open enrollment alerts if you have not already done so.

Thank you for your message Julie.

Best Regards,

Mary Shrader
