Youth Assets

Youth assets are positive qualities valued in all people.  There are 40 developmental youth assets that have been identified by the National Search Institute.  These attributes are important building blocks for an individual's self esteem and essential to positive adult development.  The categories of assets are; Support, Empowerment, Boundaries and Expectations, Constructive Use of Time, Commitment to Learning, Positive Values, Social Competencies and Positive Identity.
 
HF-L offers support to parents of Special Education children through an organization called COPE; Collaborative Organization of Parents and Educators.  This group which is organized by Trish Bowers and Phil Burrows of HF-L tries to reach out and connect to any parent who has a child with a special need.  Whether parents need emotional support, help with NYS assistance issues or are looking for a social outlet for their child, COPE is there to answer questions and support our families.  In fact, COPE has started holding Fun and Game nights during the year.  The nights are open to all family members of a special needs child.  COPE also works with a program at the high school called "TIES" that connects a young adult helper/mentor to a child with a special need.  For additional information on this program please contact Phil Burrows at philip_burrows@hflcsd.org or 624-7017.
 
We hope this element of our webpage will enable the parents and adults in our community to learn more about the 40 developmental assets and share this knowledge with others.
