Healthy Communities • Healthy Youth
Healthy Communities • Healthy Youth is a community partnership created in Hopewell Valley 22 years ago. It is a unique approach that empowers the community to promote the positive development of its children, adolescents and teens. It does so by ensuring that each sector of the community realizes the benefits of a specific list of developmental assets are experienced by our youth. These assets are building blocks young people need to become healthy, principled and caring adults. Research has shown the more developmental assets in a young person’s life the more likely they are to succeed and the less likely they are to engage in at-risk behaviors.
