In 2009 the Community Alliance for Research and Engagement at Yale University (CARE) implemented a multisectoral chronic disease prevention initiative called Community Interventions for Health, in which seven local high school students were hired to conduct asset mapping. This paper provides a detailed description of how youth mapped assets in their communities, personal quotes from youth about their participation, and an evaluation of youth-driven asset mapping as a method.
