YouthWho We Help: Youth

Project Cornerstone uses the developmental assets to describe the positive things that you need in your life to help you feel valued, respected and known in your community and to help you find your “sparks”— the passions and interests that make you feel energized and happy.

  • Are you being bullied, or do you know someone who’s being bullied? Read about bullying and peer violence and learn ways that you can make a difference and help stop bullying in your school or neighborhood. Click here to learn more!
  • Does your school have a bullying problem? Ask your teacher or principal to host the Expect Respect bullying prevention and leadership workshop at your school. In Expect Respect, kids from every social group on campus work together to create action plans that directly address the kinds of bullying that happen at your school. Click here to learn more!
  • The choices that you make about the way you live your life can help you or harm you in achieving your goals and dreams. Check the Ideas and Resources page for ways to identify and strengthen your positive relationships and experiences and improve the areas where you may need some help. Click here to learn more!
  • Click here to see videos about “Asset Champions,” including kids who received an award for positive peer influence!
