Putting Assets into Action: Show appreciation to youth in the community

-A A +A
By The Staff

Our asset for this week is number seven, community values youth. For those of you who don’t know, the reason I started this work was actually because of this asset. At the time, our data showed that only 15 percent of students in the community felt valued.

We can take a look to see what makes youth feel valued, but it really must come from within each business, organization and facility. When we look at relationships, also look at how you define community. There’s a family community, a school community, a faith community, an organizational community, a work community and so on.

Last month, I charged each of you with a New Year’s resolution to let people know when they’ve done a good job. I forgot to tell you when I do. So I have two for this month. The first is the newspaper delivery boy who delivers to my house whose name is Dallon. This week, he should have found some cookies in the newspaper box for his and his parents’ hard work on snowy days. He is certainly someone who can be thanked more than once a year.

The second was to give kudos to a boy named Cooper who works for Los Alamos Home Improvement on DP Road. He was very helpful and beyond polite when I went to purchase some wood for a project last weekend.
