Description
 
The companion to the inspirational and informative More Than Just a Place To Go DVD, this book encourages youth programs to integrate assets into their current programs. It profiles and uses examples from a variety of successful, yet distinctly different, youth programs: a faith-based city after-school program for 8th through 12th graders, a neighborhood multi-site activity program focused on learning opportunities, and an after-school YMCA tutorial program for 6- to 15-year-olds. Authored by veteran youth program professionals with years of experience in the field.

Includes:
  • Supporting research behind assets and their proven, positive youth impact;
  • Celebration of programs' strengths;
  • Examples of engaging staff and leadership in introducing and using assets; and
  • Ideas for becoming more intentional with asset building.
