In 2003, Thrive (formerly the Community Youth Network, St. John’s) compiled an Asset Map Directory listing all the services available for youth in the St. John’s Metro Area. Originally inspired by John McKnight’s Building Communities from the Inside Out: A Path Toward Finding and Mobilizing a Community’s Assets (1993), the Directory of Services for Youth is currently updated annually and available both online and in pdf format.
Since service providers, programs, services, and contact information are constantly changing, we would like to invite all community groups and stakeholders to direct any omissions, mistakes, or updates to Tamara Squires at firstname.lastname@example.org or 754-0536 ext. 200.
