Sponsored by LGHS Home & School Club, the "Taking It Personally Asset Champion Training" program is scheduled for the next five consecutive Tuesdays from 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. in Room 303 at the high school.
Experts affirm that developmental assets are the positive values, relationships, skills and experiences that help children and teens thrive.
Young people with high asset levels are most likely to make healthy choices and succeed academically, while those with lower asset levels are more likely to get involved with negative or risky behaviors like violence, trouble in school, drug and alcohol use.
Led by Project Cornerstone School Partnerships director Linda Silvius, the sessions will help adults understand and better support young people, and provide tools, exercises and strategies to fulfill their commitments.
