Results of youth survey to be shared
SALEM-The county-wide results of the Search Institute Youth Survey will be shared at 8 a.m. Nov. 3 at the Salem Community Center. The breakfast meeting is sponsored by Salem Community Hospital, the Alcohol and Drug Abuse Prevention Team (ADAPT), and the Coordinated Action for School Health (CASH) Coalition.
The Search Institute, a non-profit research center in Minneapolis, Minn., has created a framework to measure positive attributes, called assets, experienced by young people. The 40 assets relate to external influences (parents, teachers, community members, and peers) and internal factors (honesty, peaceful conflict resolution skills, and goal-setting ability). According to research, the more assets a young person can identify in his or her life, the less likely that person will engage in high risk behaviors.
In February, 10 school districts in Columbiana County administered the Search Institute's Profiles of Student Life: Attitudes and Behaviors Survey to seventh and 10th- grade students. More than 1700 students completed the survey.
A continental breakfast will be served and reservations may be made by calling Danielle Dillon, CASH coordinator, at 330-424-9591 Ext. 185. "The survey is a valuable tool for identifying and building opportunities to help our youth develop into healthy, responsible adults," said Dillon.
