40 Developmental Assets

Search Institute of Minneapolis is an independent nonprofit organization whose mission is to provide leadership, knowledge, and resources to promote healthy children, youth, and communities. Search Institute through its research has identified 40 Developmental Assets for Adolescents (ages 12-18),

...concrete, common sense, positive experiences and qualities essential to raising successful young people. These assets have the power during critical adolescent years to influence choices young people make and help them become caring, responsible adults.
See also the The Search Institute Information Brochure that is designed as an introduction to Search Institute and the concept of 40 Developmental Assets. It contains a brief explanation of the assets, areas of work at Search Institute, the asset categories, and a listing of "25 Ways to Show Kids You Care." It can be printed out in either black and white or in color and is then tri-folded.
