Resources: You Can Make a Difference for Kids Booklet

This eight-page, glossy color booklet (8½ inches square) summarizes the 40 Developmental Assets concept to inspire adults in all walks of life to offer support and guidance to the youth they encounter. With probing questions – one for each of the eight asset categories – an introduction urges adults to recall their own mentors. The following page lists “40 Positive Things You Can Offer Kids.” Suggestions include “Treat kids with respect.” Fill-in charts aid in planning simple and then more involved actions to take with youth. Inspiring sidebars describe what others have done. A removable bookmark and chart of the 40 Developmental Assets for Adolescents is included; on its back are 40 color-coded suggestions such as “Ask a young person to teach you a new skill” in gold, matching the Empowerment category. Its inviting format makes the odds good that this handout, in packs of 15, will fulfill its mission.
