Youth Worker Café (Online)

June 4, 2020 @ 7:30 am - 9:00 am

Please join us for our next Johnson County virtual Youth Worker Café.

Everyone’s An Asset Builder: 40 Developmental Assets Framework

The Developmental Assets® are 40 research-based, positive qualities that influence young people’s development, helping them become caring, responsible, and productive adults. Based in youth development, resiliency, and prevention research, the Developmental Assets framework has proven to be effective and has become the most widely used approach to positive youth development in the United States and, increasingly, around the world. The framework has been adapted to be developmentally relevant from early childhood through adolescence. Kids Count Data showed us that 1 in 3 people will grow up without a mentor and shows us that mentoring has a lasting positive influence on a youth’s health, education and sense of community. We all can be mentors and asset builders.

As youth care professionals, our attitudes, values and beliefs about young people are key in working with youth.  We have to practice “doing WITH youth” not “doing TO youth” if we want our work to be productive with youth.
