Healthy Communities • Healthy Youth
Healthy Communities • Healthy Youth is a community partnership created in Hopewell Valley 20 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 within and experienced by our youth. These assets are building blocks young people need to become healthy, principled and caring adults. The more developmental assets in a young person’s life the more likely they will succeed and the less likely they will engage in at-risk behaviors.
