Search Institute

Search Institute is an independent nonprofit organisation whose mission is to provide leadership, knowledge, and resources to promote healthy children, young people, 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.
