-A A +A

The Los Alamos County Council issued a proclamation on Tuesday declaring Friday "College Day/Military Day" in Los Alamos County and 2016-2017 as a "Year of Asset Building.” The Los Alamos Commerce and Development Corporation (LACDC) and Champions of Youth Ambitions (C’YA) were on hand to accept the proclamation. Both organizations support local efforts to encourage the Search Institute's 40 Developmental Assets, which they call “common sense, positive experiences and qualities that help influence the choices young people make to become caring, responsible adults.” Those assets include support, empowerment, boundaries and expectations, constructive use of time, commitment to learning, positive values, social competencies and positive identity. The Los Alamos Program, called Assets in Action, is focused on creating “a Healthy Community, Healthy Youth.”
