HEALTHY COMMUNITY – HEALTHY YOUTH FLAMBOROUGH

…is a partnership of parents, community groups, schools, businesses, agencies and organizations working together to create an asset building community in which all young people thrive.

Youth holding hands

Developmental Assets are 40 positive values, experiences and qualities that help young people make positive choices in life and avoid engaging in high-risk behaviours. We see youth as co-creators of their community, giving them the support, resources and tools they need to grow into happy and successful adults.

“What’s Your Path” Hub. The proposed new hub concept will assist youth in better understanding their skills & strengths, connect them to opportunities which will allow them to explore career paths (volunteering, co-op, internships, experiential learning), provide resources/information on all post-secondary pathways as well as up-to-date information on the job market and the economy to help them make informed decisions. Read more.

Mentored by adults, youth are empowered to take on leadership roles and build skills.

Challenging schools, community groups, businesses, sports organizations and people of all ages to create teams that work together.

The challenge will bring awareness and provide information on how to build these assets. Developmental assets are the 40 values, experiences and qualities that youth need to succeed.

All proceeds will go to support mental health and well-being in Flamborough Youth.

Vision and Goals

Developmental assets are the 40 values, experiences and qualities which empower youth to succeed. These assets are the most widely used approach to positive youth development in Canada. They are grounded in extensive research in youth development, resiliency and prevention.

VISION

Youth in Flamborough are asset-rich, make healthy decisions, are involved in the community, and are supported, loved and cared for by the whole community.

GOALS

Our goals are to increase awareness of developmental assets among parents, teachers, businesses, community groups and organizations, to create a network of caring adults and organizations that promote and support each other in asset building and to engage youth in building assets for themselves, their peers, and younger children

OUR FOCUS

HC-HY Flamborough is focused on building four key “Developmental Assets” creating a community where youth, aged 12 – 25, contribute, feel valued, are able to set & achieve goals, and feel optimistic about their future. The Developmental Relationship framework will guide our interactions with Flamborough youth.
