Beaumont FCSS follows the philosophy of developmental assets in our approach to working with youth and in our community. Whether you are a parent, a grandparent, aunt, uncle, friend, neighbor, doctor, teacher or employer, you can help build assets in children and youth.
How can you build assets?
Start a conversation over your fence with a young neighbour
Send a young person a thank you card
Encourage youth to write letter to the editor when they are passionate about an issue
Host a neighbourhood block party
Asset Building is about doing what we all already do, but being intentional and positively interacting with young people more often.
Some of the results from the 2009 survey:
25% of youth perceive that adults in our community value youth
50% of youth have positive family boundaries where there are clear rules and consequences, and their whereabouts are monitored
60% of youth in Beaumont feel their parents and teachers encourage them to do well
