This interactive workshop explores both of Search Institute’s research-based frameworks and how they can be used as to elevate the health and well-being of young people in our community. Developmental Assets describe internal and external factors that promote thriving. Developmental relationships are the roots of youth success. This framework identifies 5 critical elements and actions we can all do help youth be and become their best selves.


ENGAGING FAMILIES  September 23, 2021

The challenges and changes facing youth and families are real.  Together,
individuals, agencies and organizations will learn this strength-based approach to engaging, supporting, and empowering families – helping them to not only cope, but also to thrive!

During this workshop, participants will:

– Recognize key strengths in our America’s diverse families that really matter for positive development and resilience

– Explore the obstacles to engaging families and practical ways to begin
addressing them.

– Identify “rules of engagement” for working with families from a strength- and relationship-based orientation.

– Gain practical tools to enhance current family engagement efforts with new strategies and processes.
