Assets in Action

Developmental Assets® influence young people’s development, helping them become caring, responsible and productive adults. The Developmental Assets framework has proven to be an effective approach to positive youth development in Midland and many other communities across the country.

Developmental Assets are featured in the center spread of every issue of Youth Connections. The Assets in Action feature allows us to use local photos that highlight asset-building activities and programs in our local community.

If you would like to submit a picture representing one of the 40 Developmental Assets, please complete the form and upload the photo. If your submission is chosen, you will be contacted and the appropriate permissions obtained. There is no guarantee that your picture will be published.
