YMCA OF SILICON VALLEY'S PROJECT CORNERSTONE believes that all children and teens should feel valued, respected, and known.

Our Asset Champions Celebration honors UPstanders whose commitment to building positive relationships with youth ensures the Bay Area will continue to be a place where young people thrive and grow into caring, responsible adults. 

Join us as we celebrate local individuals, schools, and organizations that make extraordinary efforts to support and build Developmental Assets*, and inspire others to do the same.

Please take a moment to click on each of the spotlights below where you can view videos of each winner, read about an UPstander in our community, see all the people, sponsors, and funders that support our cause, and more! Thank you for visiting our page and celebrating our 2020 Asset Champions with us.

*Developmental Assets ®, a Search Institute framework, are the strengths and resources in a young person's life such as positive relationships, social and emotional skills, values, experiences, and communities. Learn more here
