Solutions

At Search Institute we help you apply research to relationships in practical and impactful ways. Whether you need workshops, surveys, continuous improvement, or more—reach out to discover solutions that are right for you.

Research consistently shows that young people from all backgrounds do better when they have a strong foundation of Developmental Assets® in their lives. Developmental Assets® are a set of 40 research-based strengths and supports that enable young people to develop into successful and contributing adults. We want to introduce as many people as possible to the powerful role that asset builders play in young people’s lives.

This training will prepare participants to deliver two core Search Institute designed workshops to their own organization: Everyone’s an Asset Builder and Sharing the Asset Message.

Participants will receive a full curriculum to lead both workshops including PowerPoint presentations and handouts. Participants will also receive an Essentials of Asset Building Library Discount to support implementation.

Everyone’s an Asset Builder introduces the Developmental Assets® Framework and the powerful role of individual asset builders in the lives of youth. This workshop will help participants:

  • Identify the characteristics of effective asset builders and their own personal strengths and challenges

  • Understand “circles of influence” and identify those circles with potential for asset building

  • Make and share a personal commitment to asset-building action

Sharing the Asset Message prepares community members and groups to deliver a variety of asset-building messages to multiple audiences. This workshop will help participants:

  • Discuss how the assets relate to other positive youth development efforts

  • Develop engaging presentation strategies to meet the unique needs of any audience

  • Download free curriculum materials to use in your own presentations

"The big idea is simple, but so important to remember. We all have the power to make a difference to our communities."
