Edwards is a model "Asset Builder" and PATCHWorks is very pleased to have the opportunity to recognize him for his efforts. The next time you see him, say hello, congratulate and thank him for the important work he is doing with young people.
PATCHWorks is a local non-profit organization in Ketchikan that promotes the developmental assets in our youth population. These 40 assets represent different relationships, experiences and opportunities that have been identified through a great deal of research as a coherent framework for promoting and supporting positive youth development.
In PATCHWorks' efforts to build community awareness about the assets and promote the idea that everyone can help build them, PATCHWorks likes to recognize individuals or organizations in our community that are building assets in our youth. PATCHWorks plans to honor a different "Asset Builder" each month.
PATCHWorks is seeking additional
"Asset Builder" nominations from the public. If you
know of someone whom you feel should be nominated for this honor,
please call 225-4350 and ask for Karen Eakes. PATCHWorks plans
to select from nominees on a monthly basis and continue to recognize
the positive efforts that are benefiting our youth and our community.
