This powerful training program developed by H. Stephen Glenn prepares adults who work with young people at developing the three perceptions and four skills which determine how effectively they’ll deal with life. Young people who gain strength in these assets normally increase in character, resiliency, and other human intelligences essential for living. They meet life's challenges of learning, relationships, and the work world ­– successfully.

“No parent, teacher, counselor or youth worker can afford to be without this program!”
— Dr. Bruce W. Colston, Indiana University

“Developing Capable Young People training programs provide an important foundation for Oregon’s highly effective Self-Sufficiency and Welfare reform efforts”.
— Perry Downes, Oregon Dept. of Adult & Family Svcs.
