Nurses have been urged to examine the co-occurrence of adolescent risk behaviors and factors that influence pro-social behaviors. One holistic approach promoted as a means of studying adolescents is the youth development approach. Youth development has been mostly studied in suburban or rural middle class youth. This study aimed to: strengthen research-based knowledge through the exploration of positive youth development in a diverse, urban adolescent population; and identify variables that contribute to positive youth development in a diverse population. Participants were current sixth graders during the 2004-2005 academic year. Descriptive statistics, correlational analysis and logistic regression techniques found that assets were related to some risk behaviors, health behaviors and thriving indicators for participating youth. The results indicate that specific assets may be related to risk behaviors, health behaviors and thriving indicators in urban youth but a cumulative effect of the number of assets on behavior was not found.
