© Copyright IGESL – All rights reserved What Does It Take? 3. Use the piece of yarn to make a circle in the center of your table. 4. Share your cards. 5.

© Copyright IGESL – All rights reserved Developmental Assets Studies Beginning in 1989 Search Institute began surveying students in grades 6-12 in communities across the United States. The work continues today in almost every state with hundreds of thousands of youth! The assets build on the work and research of people in the area of child and adolescent development, prevention, youth development and resiliency. Benson,P., J. Galbraith and P. Espel, What Teens Need to Succeed, Free Spirit Publishing.
© Copyright IGESL – All rights reserved Focus of Studies They focused on why some kids prevail, not fail. What positive factors allow some to beat the odds while others get trapped? Why do some get involved in dangerous activities while others lead productive lives?
© Copyright IGESL – All rights reserved Findings The more a young person has the more likely he/she is to succeed. The assets promote outcomes such as doing well in school or having successful peer relationships. The more assets a person has the less likely it is that he/she will engage in problem behaviors such as illicit drug use or cutting school. They found the effect of assets to be cumulative.
© Copyright IGESL – All rights reserved Research shows that assets both promote positive behaviors and attitudes and help protect young people from many different problem behaviors regardless of » Gender, » Ethnic heritage, » Economic situation, or » Geographic location 2006 Search Institute
© Copyright IGESL – All rights reserved There are 40 assets grouped into two categories.
© Copyright IGESL – All rights reserved External Assets Outer factors that a young person needs as an influence in his/her life such as family support or the community values youth.
© Copyright IGESL – All rights reserved Internal Assets Items that a person needs in him/herself such as interpersonal competence and planning and decision making skills
© Copyright IGESL – All rights reserved The average 6 th through 12th grader surveyed has 18 of the 40 assets.

© Copyright IGESL – All rights reserved The higher students current asset levels, the higher their GPA. In addition, the more assets a students reported, the higher their GPA three years later. Students' asset levels are twice as important in predicting achievement as demographic factors such as gender, family composition, socioeconomic status, or race/ethnicity. Low-income students who experience more developmental assets appear to be more likely to do well in school than low-income students who do not experience many developmental assets.
