Bringing the 40 Developmental Assets® framework to Teton Valley was born when local leaders noticed increases in youth interactions with law enforcement and juvenile probation, as well as upticks in mental health referrals. Realizing that while we have lots of great services for youths once in crisis, there was little in the way of preventing crises.
This first program of its kind in the valley, our mission is to collaborate with individuals, organizations, and agencies to improve the quality of life for youth using the 40 Developmental Assets® framework.
Because we know healthy kids make healthy communities. And we want to be-better together!
