Healthy Youth Suggestions for Connecting With Kids


Fairmont’s Healthy Youth Committee has been working for a number of years with Search Institute’s 40 Developmental Assets.   The assets are bench marks, both internal and external, that measure the prevalence of skills, personal strengths, positive attitudes and levels of support (Assets) that youth have in their life.   Results are obtained from surveys given to students.

Recently the Healthy Youth Committee conducted some “Listening Lunches” to allow students to share their thoughts regarding some of the survey questions that rank lowest.  We asked students why they are low and how youth and adults might help improve these assets.
