The process will be typified by personalized investment in the youths’ potential and talent in addition to coaching. The goal is to support and challenge them to have higher expectations for themselves as a way of getting out of poverty and depravity ( Mathie, Cameron, & Gibson, 2017). The main presumption is that individuals have unique strengths and social workers support them to find solutions to their own situations ( Stuart & Perris, 2017). From this point of view, there are homeless or disadvantaged youths in Devon Shire. In this context, the asset-based system begins by identifying and celebrating what the youth are, can do, and have. Youths set their distinctive aims and goals, and this paradigm involves an expert working with them to facilitate their growth. Aptitudes improve in this situation and the youth show positive potentials resulting in better gains and exceptional development ( McKnight & Kretzmann, 1993). By working in tandem, all aspects of the system support the youth making them more successful and independent. This theory puts humans as agents of change instead of faulting the youth for their problems.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
