Youth Voices United for Change! It’s never too early to begin cultivating future leaders from today’s youth. 40 Story’s integrates visual art and storytelling to help youth explore their core leadership skills. Inspired by the 40 Developmental Assets created by the Search Institute, 40 Story’s helps people strive to become healthier and more caring citizens. This project has brought together over 50 kids and teens to establish a thought provoking book on youth leadership through storytelling. Participating youth have united to uniquely express these 40 Developmental Assets in their own way, portraying how youth view empowerment, personal power, positive values, and other building blocks of healthy development. In 40 Story’s, the assets necessary to inspire and encourage the leaders of tomorrow are interwoven in an enjoyable and original way. “What great lessons for young people...and elders as well.
