40 Developmental Assets

QV Voice is a student-run organization that bases its work off of the Search Institute’s 40 Developmental Assets. 

The Search Institute is an independent nonprofit organization whose mission is to provide leadership, knowledge, and resources to promote healthy children, youth, and communities. To accomplish this mission, the institute generates and communicates new knowledge, and brings together community, state, and national leaders.

At the heart of the institute's work is the framework of 40 Developmental Assets, which are positive experiences and personal qualities that young people need to grow up healthy, caring, and responsible.

The Search Institute‘s research documents the need for adults to intentionally focus on ways to increase young people's assets. QV Voice aims to build the assets of QV students through the development of partnerships and promotion of positive relationships with adults and students in the community.

QV Voice utilizes the 40 Developmental Assets model to support and promote healthy lifestyle choices.
