THRIVING LEVELS

Average Number of Thriving Indicators

Just as assets protect against negative behaviors, they also promote positive behaviors. Having multiple protective factors (assets) as a young person is more influential in ensuring positive youth outcomes than having risk factors (deficits & risky behaviors)

Youth with more Developmental Assets generally report higher average levels of thriving indicators.

Strengthening the Foundationof Developmental Assets

All young people need assets ~ While it is crucial to pay special attention to youth who have the least resources (economically/emotionally), all children and adolescents will benefit from having even more assets than they have now.Everyone Can build assets ~ All adults, youth & children can play a role in developing assets by spreading positive messages to and about young people across the community.Building assets is an ongoing process ~ Asset development starts with a child is born, and continues through high school and beyond. Relationships are crucial ~ A key to asset development is strong relationships between adults & young people, between young people & their peers and between teenagers & younger children.Send consistent messages ~ Asset building requires sending consistent, positive messages to youth & adults about what is important. Repeat the message – again & again ~ Young people need to hear the same positive messages and feel support, over and over, from many different people.
