Youth succeed when they have adequate support systems in place that encourage socioeconomic success. The enabling environment refers to the people in a child's life that model the key skills for success later in life. How can parents, mentors, teachers and employeers interact with youth without stifiling individual development?

Search Institute establishes a framework for influential figures in a child's life, while Save the Children and FHI360 demonstate how this framework can be practically applied.
