"Youth are seeking to discover who they are, and the StrengthsExplorer can be a valuable resource for them and their parents. Based on current research on human strengths, the StrengthsExplorer invites young people to learn about their unique talents and skills in a way that is positive, thought-provoking, and relevant to everyday life."

"The StrengthsExplorer showed me my Top 3 strengths and they were so right! It was like the computer knew me."
Grace Mussman, Age 10
"StrengthsExplorer was easy to take - not too long, not too short, just right. I showed my Top 3 strengths to my parents."
Trevor Reimnitz, Age 12
"My two sons took StrengthsExplorer, and it really helped affirm their uniqueness. So often they compare themselves to each other, but this tool really helped them understand how they are wired differently, and how they think differently. It helped them gain a better understand of themselves and their natural gifts."
John Reimnitz, Parent
"Because of StrengthsExplorer, we have become more attuned to seeing what our students do well and we are helping our students become aware of their wonderfully unique qualities."
Cathy Deslavo, Principal, Wegner Middle School, Girls and Boys Town
"I think the StrengthsExplorer has provided students with a common language and understanding of not only their personal strengths, but the strengths of their classmates, teachers, and administrators. The StrengthsExplorer process affirms that everyone has things at which they excel... and verifies things they may have already noticed about themselves and others. It has been exciting to watch the kids interact with each other and the teachers using the common StrengthsExplorer language."
Aaron Zabawa, Assistant Principal, Culler Middle School
"What would happen if we make the most of the strengths of our youth? Now, we can find out. The Clifton Youth StrengthsExplorer, building on the successes of the Clifton StrengthsFinder, names the strengths that makes each person special. Every student should have a chance to take this measure."
Shane J. Lopez, Ph.D., Department of Psychology and Research in Education, University of Kansas, Lawrence
"Actively exploring one's capabilities and strengths is an important developmental task during adolescence. StrengthsExplorer is a very useful tool that can help youth in this process of discovery and development."
