What are the 40 Developmental Assets?
The Developmental Assets® are 40 research-based, positive experiences and qualities that influence young people’s development, helping them become caring, responsible, and productive adults. Based in youth development, resiliency, and prevention research, the Developmental Assets framework has proven to be effective and has become the most widely used approach to positive youth development in the United States and, increasingly, around the world. The framework has been adapted to be developmentally relevant from early childhood through adolescence. (reference: http://www.search-institute.org/what-we-study/developmental-assets)
What does ||evidence-based|| mean?
To qualify as an evidence–based program, curriculum must have been rigorously evaluated in experimental evaluations – like randomized controlled trials – by a third-party not connected in any way to the company that owns the program or the curriculum itself. To be considered an evidence-based program the third-party’s evaluation of the curriculum must show a positive and statistically significant difference in important outcomes it proves to address.
