40 Assets

The Developmental Assets® are 40 research-based, positive experiences and qualities that influence young people’s development, helping them become caring, responsible, and productive adults.   

Over time, studies of more than 5 million young people consistently show that the more assets that young people have, the less likely they are to engage in a wide range of high-risk behaviors and the more likely they are to thrive.

The Georgetown Project is deeply rooted in the 40 Developmental Assets® framework of positive youth development. Backed by 50 years of health and prevention research, these 40 supports, opportunities and experiences make a difference in the lives of young people, and help them become caring, capable and resilient young adults. All programs of the organization are designed to build Assets in children and youth.

Because of its basis in youth development, resiliency, and prevention research and its proven effectiveness, the Developmental Assets framework has become one of the most widely used approach to positive youth development in the United States.
