PUTTING ASSETS INTO ACTION: Local youth, a local resource

-A A +A
By The Staff

This week we look at Asset #7 Community Values Youth. According to the Search Institute, youth are more likely to grow up healthy when they perceive that adults in the community value youth.

When I started my interest in working with Assets, our community rated 15 percent, according to our youth, on how the community valued them. While the current data results aren’t due back for a few months, I’m certain the tide is changing.

Since our last data collection, Los Alamos County has implemented a youth driven advisory council and built a skate park in the heart of downtown.

The Los Alamos Historical Museum has made an effort to acquire youth feedback to support its work in the community.

The YMCA’s Youth Mobilizers through support of the Juvenile Justice Advisory Board have researched how youth spend their money in the community and made the information available to local businesses.

The Mobilizers also spent time studying the causes that led youth to drop out of school and what they wish had been done differently. The information continued with researching if the students continued their education or left the educational system.
