  • Small choices made now make a difference

    The asset of personal power looks at how youth feel about the amount of control they have over what happens to them.
    I believe this asset can be a bit hard for youth to envision in a long-range way. At this point, it has a lot to do with students taking classes they want to take or getting involved in programs or projects they want to be a part of, either in school or in the community.
    It also has a lot to do with their level of engagement in their current activities. Do they know they have an activity come up that week or do they get in the car and just take part in whatever you have planned for them?
    Open a dialog to see what kids are interested in at a young age. What things would they like to try and what can you make happen?
