Research shows that young people who refrain from sexual activity and the use of alcohol and other drugs are more likely to grow up healthy. Make it easy for young people to come to you and talk about the temptations in their lives. Avoid judging. Listen, and educate. #AssetTalkTuesday #Restraint
This week our focus is on responsibility. Allow young people an opportunity to do their best—sometimes without assistance. This is one way we empower our young people. Research from the Search Institute shows that young people are more likely to succeed if they accept and take responsibility for their actions. #AssetTalkTuesday #responsibility #youthempowerment #support

This is the official kick off of the Proviso Asset Champion Network! This Network will be a forum for gathering all Asset Champions together to support and encourage one another. Asset Champions will also be encouraged to go back and focus internally within their own organizations and neighborhoods. Strengthening Proviso Youth will showcase all participating youth serving organizations and how they serve as community supports for youth. #Spy40Proviso
