Project Cornerstone

Project Cornerstone, an initiative of the Silicon Valley YMCA, trains parents, adult relatives and adult friends to lead literature-based classroom discussions for the Asset Building Champions (ABC) and Los Dichos programs, as well as a variety of student and adult trainings on asset development and bullying prevention. On the Project Cornerstone page, you may download the 41 Developmental Assets that Project Cornerstone and the Search Institute put together (based on age). Studies show that the more of these assets or traits students have, the more successful they will be in life. In addition, they will be less likely to participate in negative or at-risk behavior. Kids with 30-41 assets will thrive; while, kids with 1-10 assets will struggle.
