Impact in our community
Think On Point and Life On Point
Trainings are designed to equip attendees in the implementation of our two locally developed curricula used in our schools. Both curriculum can be implemented in a variety of settings and these trainings include adaptation strategies.
Trainings are tailored to specific audiences to introduce the Search Institute’s 40 Developmental Assets and their role in healthy youth development. The training is interactive and helps participants see how “everyone is an asset-builder”!
Trainings are often requested by community members on a variety of youth related topics in which On Point staff members have gained expertise. Requests are frequently related to helping students avoid a host of risk behaviors; such as teen dating violence, early sexual activity, substance abuse, pornography, violence and gang involvement. Training in building assets through mentoring and service-learning while increasing critical thinking and vision for the future are key strategies in reducing youth risk behaviors.
