Participate in the RAND Transform Me Project

RAND is conducting a research study to learn about how a new curriculum designed to meet the specific needs of adolescents can help 9th and 10th grade students and educators increase self-confidence, build and maintain healthy relationships, increase academic excellence, and find success both in and out of school.

Who is eligible?

  • We are looking for schools that serve 9th and 10th graders
  • Teachers of academic subjects, school counselors, or administrators who meet with 9th and 10th grade students regularly

What is involved if selected?

  • Taking a 10-minute survey
  • Administering a 15-minute survey to your 9th and 10th grade students
  • Filling out a daily advisory checklist for 10 days
  • Participating in a one-day (or two half-day) virtual professional development sessions

Participants will receive $200 in gift cards and your school will receive a donation of $500 to help coordinate the study with the RAND team. You will continue to have free access to the Transform Me course in 2026–27.

If you are interested and would like to learn more, fill out the interest survey. Within 24 hours, a member of the study team will reply with more details and next steps for participation.
