Positive Action has been used in a multitude of countries outside the U.S and Canada. The first country to use Positive Action outside of the U.S. was the U.S.S.R. In 1987, the City of Moscow began piloting Positive Action in its urban schools, as a part of Mikhail Gorbachev’s Glasnost initiative. In tandem to piloting Positive Action, the Soviet government also facilitated a series of youth summits between Russian and American students, hosted in Moscow. After two years of dramatic results from the pilot, both parties signed a distribution agreement, and translation efforts were accelerated. These efforts stalled with dissolution of the government in 1991. While this project is a curious footnote in history, it is also indicative of the universality of Positive Action content.
Today, Positive Action has adopted a licensing model for its international ventures. It provides qualified entities the opportunity to translate and adapt the program for distribution within their country. This model is preferred as operating a business such as Positive Action requires knowledge of the local customs and education system. There are also important business considerations that vary from country to country. This opportunity requires substantial capital, business or entrepreneurial experience, and some understanding of the educational system within the target country.
