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.
