Accelerating Assets in Alexandria

Accelerating Assets in Alexandria brought together community members and representatives from multiple city agencies, schools, and youth serving organizations to learn about the Developmental Assets Framework, hear the results from the 2016 Developmental Assets survey, and to select three or four Developmental Assets the community can collectively work toward improving over the next four years.  

The workshop featured Michael Swisher, Asset Specialist for Arlington County, and Clinton Page, Chief Accountability Officer for ACPS, who helped attendees connect the assets to their work with youth and understand how Alexandria youth are doing in achieving the 40 Developmental Assets.  

Workshop attendees voted for the top assets they would like to see the community focus on over the next four years. Four Developmental Assets were selected: 

  • Positive Family Communication
  • Community Values Youth
  • Creative Activities
  • Personal Power
