Teaching and Practicing Values

The Search Institute identified 40 Developmental Assets (Assets) as the building blocks of healthy development that help young people grow up healthy, caring, and responsible. Studies have found the Assets to be catalysts of positive change in Individuals, Organizations and Communities. The Assets help to empower individuals to create a sense of centeredness, purpose and focus - nurturing the qualities that guide positive life choices. (see The Power of Developmental Assets)

The Assets are the foundation for all of Ventana del Soul's Programs.
