Simple Ways to Invest in Children.

Looking for an easy way to remind others about the power of positive youth development? Susan noticed this message at the bottom of someone's e-mail this week:

"Asset of the Week: SERVICE TO OTHERS. When young people start to reach out and help others, their world grows and so does their confidence. How can you help young people serve in their community one hour or more per week?"

It would be so easy to rotate among the 40 Developmental Assets, and sharing a simple activity, conversation toipc or 'way of being' that builds assets in the life of children and youth.

If you have a great idea, please share it with us, so we can share it with other youth workers, educators and parents around the world!
