Bring a Workshop to You

Our on-site, professional development workshops feature Search Institute facilitators who lead workshops online or travel to your organization and bring a learning experience to you.

Workshops to Fit Your Needs

Our workshops are based on Search Institute’s research-based developmental relationships or Developmental Assets® frameworks. These social emotional (SEL) focused workshops are a half-day or a full day in duration, although we can adapt these to work with your own unique needs. The sponsoring organization generally hosts the event at its facility.

Developmental Assets: The Power of One, The Power of Many
This highly motivating, interactive workshop explores the positive paths anyone can take to increase the number of Assets in the lives of children and youth.

Engaging Families: A Relationships-Centered Approach

This workshop supports, empowers, and engages families to help youth thrive by identifying and celebrating their strengths. It builds on Search Institute’s research that identifies critical strengths that are relevant to all families, regardless of culture, income, or structure.

Essentials of Asset Building for Trainers and Facilitators

Developmental Assets® are a set of 40 research-based strengths and supports that enable young people to develop into successful and contributing adults. This workshop is an energizing two-day training that prepares facilitators and trainers to lead workshops that introduce assets to their community.

Igniting Sparks
Sparks are hidden flames inside every young person that tap into their true passions, talents, skills, and dreams. In the Igniting Sparks workshop, participants will learn the research-based approach to helping youth discover their sparks in order to be and become their best selves.

Inclusive Relationships Workshop
Creating spaces that make room for young people’s cultures and contexts—especially when they’re different from our own—is critical to thriving. When we build inclusive developmental relationships, we’re responding to a young person's identity, agency and purpose. Inclusive Relationships will provide you with tools and strategies to help all young people feel a sense of belonging.

Intentional Relationships Workshop

Educational success and social-emotional development blossom when caring adults and supportive peers are present in young people’s lives. This workshop helps participants learn to intentionally build developmental relationships with young people to powerfully benefit youth learning and development.

Keep Connected Institute for Strengthening Family Relationships
This interactive workshop helps middle school parents and youth prepare for the changes they will be facing as kids enter into the teen years. Keep Connected helps schools and middle school youth programs work with families to engage them to build strong relationships.
