Happy 4th of July - Asset Style

How can you use this holiday to help build assets in the children/youth around you?

Commitment to Learning - what can you learn about the holiday? Why is it important to study and absorb historical events? What does freedom really mean for you today?

Positive Values - how does our freedom impact our positive values? How should it impact our values?

Support - how are our support systems (family, neighborhood, church, youth organizations...) impacted by our independence?

Positive Identity - how does American freedom allow you to be the person you want to be? To explore the things you want to explore? To pursue the career that interests you most? To have a positive view of your future?

Boundaries and Expectations - how do citizens experience safety because of our freedom? How can we maintain that sense of safety?

You get the idea... What Assets will you explore this week, as you celebrate red, white and blue?
