Abstract

The Search Institute’s developmental assets serve as protective factors in adolescents’ well-being and success in life. In addition, they act as barriers to high risk behaviors such as alcohol and drug use, violence, and school dropout. Several researchers have conducted studies showing a positive correlation between both internal and external developmental assets and successful life outcomes. It is imperative that developmental assets are taught and maintained not only in the home but also in the school curriculum and in community activities.
