ASSET OF THE MONTH:
For the month of February, the asset being focused on by Partners for Youth Foundation for our community is Interpersonal Competence. Interpersonal Competence is the ability to choose a type of communication that is most effective in a given situation. Such competency empowers individuals to achieve the goals of any communication in a manner that is best suited for all parties involved. It is the hope that through building the Interpersonal Competence Asset, the young people in in our community will display empathy, sensitivity, and positive friendship skills.
