More than 150 games and projects—which have been revamped with anecdotes, tips, and techniques—are proven successes, while the new games were developed with input from Search Institute Press’s asset builders across North America. Exploring a wide range of issues that affect youth development—including family communication, school environments, peer relationships, service-learning, and self-esteem—this compilation represents the best group strategies for positive youth development, and the bilingual CD-ROM features activities in both English and Spanish.
