Connecting Youth, Families, and Community…Building Assets for a Better Future
Child Guides stand with one foot in the community, the other in the schools; gathering information and linking kids and volunteers, kids and activities, and kids and resources, ensuring all children have what they need for healthy growth.
Since 1996, the Child Guide Program has connected kids to thousands of activities and resources that answer their academic, social, and basic needs. From school supplies to snow boots, college mentors to summer camps, homework clubs to tutors, child guides connect.
The Child Guide Program is based on research done by Search Institute. Search identified “40 developmental assets” children need to grow into capable, caring and resilient adults. Studies show the fewer assets a child has, the more likely the child will be involved in unhealthy, risky behaviors. Find out more about the Assets by going to www.search-institute.org
