Reframing Need: Asset-Driven Youth Program and Community Development6 years ago 6 years ago
This webinar was hosted by YouthREX.
HERE’S HOW THE HOSTS DESCRIBE THIS WEBINAR:
Asset-driven approaches to youth program and community development align with a positive youth development framework. Rather than taking a needs or deficit-driven approach to solution-framing and planning, taking a positive and strengths-based approach offers programs and community developers a new range of perspectives for building community and individual capacity.
This interactive webinar opened with a brief introduction of asset-driven program and community development, followed by an exploration of practical ways to identify local assets at difference scales (individual, neighbourhood, system-wide) and how to use this to inform and design interventions that build on a community’s strengths.
Additionally, this webinar featured insights from a community assets-mapping project conducted by the Social Entrepreneurship Evolution Project at the NORDIK Institute hosted by Algoma University.
Participants learned tips for involving youth in assets-mapping and explored community-friendly approaches to assets-driven program and community development.
