DEVELOPMENTAL ASSETS- A GATEWAY TOWARDS HARMONY AND PEACE By Sunita Jain[1]

“You cannot find peace by avoiding life.”   ― Virginia Woolf

Peace is a sign of harmony characterized by the lack of violence, conflict behaviors and the freedom from fear of violence. It is a state of mind which gives us freedom to pursue our dreams and imagination.Peace can be achieved when the power of love replaces the love of power. It is felt only when a person can understand the intricacies of life. Life makes a man experience ups and downs but when the person is peaceful he can overcome all the happiness and sadness of the life. And this is what each one strives to do!! Rise above the materialistic life and feel the esctacy of inner peace.

Developmental Assets are gateway towards harmony and peace. The Developmental Assets are 40 research-based, positive qualities that influence young people’s development, helping them become become caring, responsible, and productive adults. Based in youth development, resiliency, and prevention research, the Developmental Assets framework has proven to be effective and has become the most widely used approach to positive youth development in the United States and, increasingly, around the world. The framework has been adapted to be developmentally relevant from early childhood through adolescence.
