Announcements > SASD and the Indian Valley Character Counts! Coalition Release Results of Recent Student Surveys
On Friday, October 21, 2016, the Indian Valley Character Counts! Coalition held a Community Awareness Breakfast and announced the results of its latest surveys of local youth. Michael Pennington, Director of the PA Commission on Crime and Delinquency's Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention was the keynote speaker at the event.
A snapshot of youth attitudes and behaviors can be found in The Indian Valley Student Support Card (IVSSC) which was introduced to approximately 100 community leaders, educators, and students from across the area at the breakfast held at LCBC Church in Harleysville.
The Souderton Area School District has been a proud partner with the IVCCC for almost 20 years and is dedicated to helping the Coalition meet its goals. This year, for the first time, students completed both the PA Youth Survey and the 40 Assets Survey.
The Support Card illustrates the assets that young people possess in their lives and the risk and protective factors that exist in the community. The Coalition is engaged in reducing risk factors and promoting protective factors in order that young people lead healthy, safe, and drug & alcohol free lives.
