Researchers at Minneapolis-based Search Institute have identified 40 Developmental Assets that all kids need in their lives - good things like family support, a caring neighborhood, and resistance skills. Communities across the nation have embraced the book's quick-read, commonsense suggestions for helping kids lead healthy, productive, positive lives and stay out of trouble. This revised and updated third edition draws on findings from a 2010 survey of about 90,000 kids (grades 6 - 12) from communities across the United States. The new data confirms the power of Developmental Assets in young people's lives, reflecting updated levels of assets young people experience as well as the power that assets have to prevent high-risk behaviors and increase thriving behaviors.
