Researchers at Minneapolis-based Search Institute have identified 40 Developmental Assets that all kids need in their lives: good things like family support, a caring neighbourhood, and resistance skills. Communities across the nation have embraced the book's quick-read, common sense suggestions for helping kids lead healthy, productive, positive lives and stay out of trouble.

This revised and updated third edition draws on findings from a survey of about 90,000 kids (grades 6-12) from communities across the United States. The data confirms the influence of Developmental Assets in young people's lives, reflecting updated levels of assets young people experience as well as the power that assets have to prevent high-risk behaviours and increase thriving behaviours.
