You Can Make A Difference for Kids!
It takes a village to raise a child. We believe that everyone has an active role to play in supporting the healthy growth and development of Teton Valley’s youth.
Our community presentation helps equip individuals, organizations, businesses, institutions, and community members in building Developmental Assets-experiences, opportunities, skills, and qualities that help young people make healthy choices and thrive in our community.
Whether it’s a multi-hour workshop or a five minute elevator pitch, we’ll share local data about our own kids’ strengths and where they could use a little support from us. As well as, simple, easy ways you can incorporate Asset Building in the work you are already doing.
Who We Are
We are a small team of community members with a wide range of skills and experience. We are excited about helping everyone become an Asset Builder and look forward to connecting with you!
