This resource details the Foundations for Young Adult Success, a developmental framework with foundational components that underlie key factors to children’s success (broadly defined as the ability to fulfill individual goals and influence the world). The foundational components include self-regulation, knowledge and skills, mind-sets, and values. The key factors to success include agency, competencies, and integrated identity. Synthesizing a wide range of research, theory, and practice knowledge, this framework incorporates knowledge about how children develop, considers the impact of various backgrounds and contexts on children’s development, and emphasizes the role of experiences and relationships as central vehicles for learning and development. The report concludes with implications for practice, policy, and research.
