The Developmental Assets: What They Mean for Children

- United Way of Carlisle and Cumberland County

Several years ago, the Search Institute researched and identified a list of 40 developmental assets, 40 building blocks that help children grow up healthy, caring and responsible. They then tailored that list for children ages 3-5. We will focus on the developmental assets in this workshop and discuss how you can help them grow in children.

Children and Grief

- WITF Public Media Center

We know how challenging the death of a loved one can be for adults. How do children deal with this kind of loss? This workshop is designed to share tools and stories in an effort to equip teachers and child care professionals to pro-actively walk with children through grief. Resources will be shared.
