Proven, Practical Ways to Shape Your Own Future
Some teens lead healthy, productive, positive lives. Others are troubled, self-destructive, and negative about themselves and the future. What makes the difference? The presence of specific assets in their lives–not financial assets, but Developmental Assets(TM) including family support, self-esteem, a caring school climate, adult role models, structured time, and positive peer influence. It’s a proven fact: The more Developmental Assets (TM) a young person has, the less likely he or she is to engage in at-risk behaviors.
