Huge shoutout to our partners at Community Action Board of Santa Cruz County for inviting us and other United 4 Youth partners to join Search Institute's Developmental Assets and Developmental Relationships Training!

The Developmental Assets and Developmental Relationships frameworks are vital for positive youth development and helped develop the structure for the former Youth Violence Prevention Strategic Plan in 2015. 

The Youth Action Network is looking forward to further implementing these frameworks, especially as it relates to sharing power with youth and amplifying their efforts, in our upcoming planning committee meetings and more!
