Now more than ever communities must pull together and focus on the social and emotional well-being of youth. Learn how Bartholomew County is working together to build assets, positive supports and strengths young people need to thrive, by integrating Search Institute’s Developmental Assets® Framework. This workshop will not only provide the principles of Developmental Assets framework but share practical examples through the lens of educators, out of school time leaders, and local youth advocates. The workshop includes helpful resources to easily begin applying Developmental Assets principles into your professional and personal life. Presented by Heather Carson and Sarah Frasier.
