The 40 developmental assets are grounded in the extensive research of the Search Institute, a national youth research and advocacy organization. They compromise the building blocks of developing healthy children and youth.
Throughout the year, Aliquippa Impact utilizes the framework of the 40 assets to invest in the lives of students. By implementing proven curriculum and strategies, we are able to empower youth and their families to take responsibility for their thriving futures. We are all responsible - every single one of us - for the development of young people in our community, and the 40 asset approach allows us to be intentional in that responsibility.
