THE 40 DEVELOPMENTAL ASSETS
The Power to Protect, Promote, and Prevent

For more than 45 years, Search Institute of Minneapolis, MN has studied adolescent development and its connection to community change. The framework of 40 Developmental Assets was first published in 1997.

The 40 Developmental Assets serve as the foundational framework for all Kroc programs. Outcomes are based on building assets successfully in young people, and our evaluation plan – Getting to Outcomes, the Thrive Report – demonstrates asset building across program categories to show the performance of The Kroc Center as a whole.
