This report was published by The Search Institute.
HERE'S HOW THE AUTHORS DESCRIBE THIS FACTSHEET:
Imagine what would happen if we could surround young people - in their families, schools, programs and neighborhoods - with the kinds of relationships through which they develop character strengths such as positive identity, agency, and commitment to community. The Search Institute is conducting a multiyear research project to develop solutions to help organizations that work with young people to strengthen close connections in their lives. This factsheet is the result of several studies and has recently been updated based on findings and feedback.
