Why This Indicator Matters

Research shows that support, coordinated community connections and adult accountability are essential for youth. Young people want relationships with the larger world. They need to know they are valued and they need guidance and support from both their family and their community. An asset such as family or peer support provides youth with high levels of love and emotional support.
