Whether you are a parent, a teacher, a community member, a religious leader, or just an adult who wants to help young people, you can begin building assets today. This positive approach to youth development is not about crisis management and it is not about stopping and preventing problems. Instead, it is about investing wisely in our youth, increasing their exposure to positive, constructive activities, and instilling values and skills that will guide them from the inside*.
Building the assets of young people, help them to succeed and decreases their susceptibility to risks such as drugs, violence, delinquency etc.
