40 Developmental Assets
The Search Institute has identified 40 positive supports and strengths that young people need to succeed. Half of the assets focus on the relationships and opportunities they need in their families, schools, and communities (external assets). The remaining assets focus on the social-emotional strengths, values, and commitments that are nurtured within young people (internal assets).
External Assets: Support, Empowerment, Boundaries & Expectations and Constructive Use of Time
Internal Assets: Commitment to Learning, Positive Values, Social Competencies, and Positive Identity
