PDFs of poster presentation and handout. ABSTRACT An overview of Asset-Based Community Development (ABCD; Kretzmann & McKnight, 1993) is given, while emphasizing the role of children. The use of capacity inventories and its implementation to create asset maps is highlighted. In order to push innovative evaluation practice, it is suggested that a specific child-oriented exemplar capacity inventory is developed using Kretzmann and McKnight‘s 1993 Capacity Inventory. Additionally, a specific list with suggestions on how to modify for children is recommended. Lastly, it is proposed how children can better identify skills and develop asset maps in a manner that they can understand and relate to.
