Developmental Assets & Developmental Relationships:
Connections that Help Youth Thrive
This interactive workshop explores both of Search Institute’s research-based frameworks and how they can be used together as to help young people grow and thrive.
The Developmental Assets® Framework articulates a broad ecology of youth development, giving communities, schools, and programs a common language to support positive development. The framework focuses on a set of internal factors (social-emotional strengths, values, and commitments) and external factors that protect from risks and promote thriving.
Developmental relationships are the roots of youth success. The framework identifies 5 critical elements and actions that make a relationship developmental, helping youth be and become their best selves.
This workshop will provide participants with a foundational understanding of both these frameworks and ways to use them to foster positive youth development.
