Links for Educators – Healthy Relationships

Building Developmental Relationships From a Distance
Search Institute’s research is demonstrating that when young people experience developmental relationships with parents, educators, youth program staff, and other adults their outcomes are better, their risk behaviors are lower, and they are more likely to be on the path to thrive in life. Staff in schools and youth programs do not need to and should not stop seeking to build developmental relationships with young people while they are not with you. Every time you take one of the relationship-building steps below, place a check next to it and know that you have made a valuable contribution to helping young people be and become their best selves.
