In an era that is instinctively distrustful of public solutions to problems of individual and family behavior, this essay outlines a broad strategy for early adolescent initiatives that considers, then exploits, the limitations of the current policy climate. The author discusses such strategies as connecting local and state initiatives with federal opportunities; the importance of marketing initiatives clearly and with an emphasis on impact; and the nuances of collaboration. Implementing these strategies are the most effective means to transcend the chilly climate that exists for early adolescent initiatives.
