We are thrilled to introduce the philosophy of Asset Building to Beaumont.
The Search Institute has identified 40 developmental assets which are the building blocks that help young people grow up healthy, caring and responsible. The 40 assets are divided into two categories, External and Internal Assets.
|Support||Commitment to Learning|
|Boundaries and Expectations||Social Competence|
|Constructive Use of Time||Positive Identity|
Beaumont FCSS is using the philosophy of developmental assets in every thing we do with youth in our community and we hope you will too. Everyone, whether you are a parent, a grandparent, aunt, uncle, friend, neighbor, doctor, teacher or employer can help build assets in our children and our youth.
Some of the results from the 2009 survey:
Asset Building is about doing what we all already do, but being intentional and positively interacting with young people more often. How can you build assets?
Stay tuned for more ways you can get involved and become an asset builder and remember there are no BUTS in the 40 Assets!
