How Do We Work?
Search Institute helps people understand what kids need to succeed and to take action based on that knowledge. We do this by:
Conducting high-quality research and evaluation that deepens knowledge of young people, what they need, and how to care for and work with them more effectively.
Providing tools, resources, and services to equip parents, educators, youth workers, policy makers, and other leaders to create a world where all young people are valued and thrive.
Collaborating with partners (foundations, corporations, schools, communities, faith-based organizations, and other systems) to broaden and deepen commitments, capacity, and effectiveness in fostering healthy development and thriving among children and adolescents.
Whom Do We Serve?
Search Institute serves all sectors of society, including K12 and higher education, faith communities, youth-serving organizations, social-service organizations, families, businesses, and the public sector.
Nearly 600 communities in 45 states and 5 Canadian provinces have initiatives based on Search Institutes approach.
In the past decade, approximately 6 million people have attended an asset-building presentation, and 300,000 people have received asset-building training. About 3 million young people in thousands of communities have been surveyed since 1990.
