This is the third in a series of reports summarizing the investment of the W. K. Kellogg Foundation in community-based health programming. It addresses the health issues confronting young people in U.S. society by profiling eight different community-based approaches to adolescent health. The programs described, all sponsored by the Kellogg Foundation, offer lessons for others designing and implementing adolescent health programs. The following programs are described: (1) TRUST: Teaching Respect, Understanding, Self-Esteem, and Togetherness for the Development of African- American Youth (East Tampa, Florida); (2) Lummi Cedar Project (Belingham, Washington); (3) Adolescent Family Life Program (Sunland Park, New Mexico); (4) Center for Black Women's Wellness (Atlanta, Georgia); (5) The Corner Health Center (Ypsilanti, Michigan); (6) Boys, Girls, Adults, Community Development Center, Inc. (Marvell, Arkansas); (7) Boston Unites To Raise Its Children (Boston, Massachusetts); and (8) New Chance, Manpower Demonstration Research Corporation (Detroit, Michigan; Allentown, Pennsylvania; Lexington, Kentucky). Lessons learned form these programs highlight the need for comprehensive and coordinated services with multiple points of access, including efforts to address employment and economic development issues. A list of 48 resources for further information is included. An executive summary of this report is contained in a separate document that has been included in this same accession.
