Great Videos on Asset Development

by Marion on August 5th, 2014

Here are two great videos, each less than 3 minutes long, which talk about techniques to support asset development in young people.

The first one found here includes simple ways adults can build relationships with youth. It is a good video to show those who work with youth, who want to build relationships with youth, or who are having challenges connecting with youth in their community.

The next video, speaks to a young person’s experience of learning about herself and how she addressed potential risk situations. This is a great video to start a discussion with a youth group around issue identification, problem solving, forward planning, and the importance of being a mentor for younger children.

Then, we have a final video which shows how assets can really empower young people. Granted, this young person is really young, but she sets the stage from which all of us can learn. Check her out here and, at the end of this video, click on the ‘watch the deleted scene’ which really shows personal affirmation around assets!

These videos then move into a TV interview show which speaks to the 40 Developmental Assets. Again, a great resource to share to give context what positive youth development work is embedded in.This is a much longer video, which is really informative, and which you could pull some information if you wanted to include it in a longer training program.
