What is an Asset Champion?

Developmental assets are the positive experiences, values, behaviors, and relationships that enable young people to thrive (For more information about developmental assets, visit the Project Cornerstone website). Asset Champions are individuals or organizations that make extraordinary efforts to build developmental assets, create positive connections with young people, and inspire others to do the same.
