I will be using Research to show how Developmental Assets plays a vital role in the lives of children. Assets are 40 values, experiences and qualities that help kids succeed. Adult role models is ONE of SIX boundaries-and-expectations assets. 27% of youth surveyed have this asset in their lives. Search Institute, has identified 40 positive experiences and qualities that all of us have the power to bring into the lives of children and youth, which are called Developmental Assets. For many people, the assets have become a source of ideas and inspiration in the face of frustration. Peter Benson, Search Institute President, coined the phrase, "the power of one" - the potential for one individual to help to heal, to support, to challenge, and to change, for the better, the life of a young person.
