The Clark County Youth House is a youth empowerment center developed by the Clark County Department of Community Services. The Youth House foundation is built on the framework of the 40 Developmental Assets developed by the Search Institute in Minneapolis, Minn. It found that the more assets young people have, the more likely they are to grow and be healthy and productive. The Youth House programs strive to increase the number of assets among each young person involved.
