Become an Asset Champion
NOTE: Children First is refreshing its training to make it better than ever! If you would like to be notified of training dates, please contact us to be put on the training email list. Training will be offered again in the spring of 2018.
Anyone who lives, works, goes to school or volunteers in St. Louis Park can become trained as an Asset Champion. Individuals from a variety of backgrounds are involved. Asset Champions understand the importance of a wide-spread, sustained effort to benefit the healthy development of our infants, children and teens. See the list of organizations that have Asset Champions.
Asset Champions keep the Children First philosophy alive by:
- Intentionally building assets in St. Louis Park young people through daily interactions.
- Educating others in St. Louis Park about the importance of the 40 Developmental Assets.
- Leading by example in influencing others in St. Louis Park to build assets.
- Incorporating asset-building into what they already do in St. Louis Park–where they live, work or volunteer.
Asset Champions attend a four-hour training session followed by a 90-minute action planning meeting. It is free to attend and is offered many times during the year.
