This document provides an annotated list of nearly 250 adolescent health resources available from non-federal organizations. This list complements the federal resource list that is part of the 2010 Guide (Chapter 8 of Improving the Health of Adolescents and Young Adults: A Guide for States and Communities). It is organized according to the health topics addressed by the 21 Critical Health Objectives. Resources within each health topic are categorized into activity areas (e.g., coalition-building, using data, programs, media, and policy). Each resource is listed with its name, web site (all are hyper-linked) and a brief description.
