Assets In Action: This year, engage youth more often

-A A +A

As you prepare for a new year, I hope you might add some asset building on to your list.
I hope this is the year that you engage youth either more often, better than in years of the past, or even begin for the first time.
The Asset mind set is not just about being nice, but framing things more positive when possible and helping youth acquire the skills, experiences and traits they need to become successful adults.
No one lives a perfect life, but sometimes all you need to do is lend an ear, or insert some hope into someone’s day, to make things just a little easier to bear.
As adults, we can recall a time when life just seemed pretty crummy. Perhaps there was a parent that was ill, a job that fell through or a relationship that ended, that added the weight to the shoulders, which was just the beginning of a heavy load.
Wow, have times changed from when we adults were young and how much can change so quickly. It doesn’t matter if you are 30, 50, or 70, what you do know is that day, that week, that month, or that year is now just a blip, on the computer screen of life.
So what can you do? I can offer you tons of ideas, there are tons of handouts, emails, text messages or books I can let you borrow.
The thing is I can lead you to Assets, but I can’t make you build.
