The Office of Adolescent Health (OAH) defined sustainability as "effectively leveraging partnerships and resources to continue programs, services, and/or strategic activities that result in improvements in the health and well-being of adolescents." It's never too early to start planning for sustainability! In fact, it's best to consider sustainability right from the start of a new project. These resources can help.
SRAE projects create logic models to clarify how their activities lead to desired outcomes. These resources outline steps in that process and provide examples. You may also wish to take the free online course offered by ETR/ReCAPP.
