A multimedia presentation with e-learning modules that introduces the steps of the Getting to Outcomes with Developmental Assets (AGTO) process. Each module uses a combination of narration, animated avatars (i.e., animated pictures of people who are doing the teaching), pictures, PowerPoint-like text, and exercises to convey the AGTO concepts, and provides information on how each step could strengthen planning, implementation, and evaluation efforts, whether for a youth-serving program or a community-based coalition or initiative.

RAND presentations may include briefings related to a body of RAND research, videos of congressional testimonies, and a multimedia presentation on a topic or RAND capability.

Our mission to help improve policy and decisionmaking through research and analysis is enabled through our core values of quality and objectivity and our unwavering commitment to the highest level of integrity and ethical behavior. To help ensure our research and analysis are rigorous, objective, and nonpartisan, we subject our research publications to a robust and exacting quality-assurance process; avoid both the appearance and reality of financial and other conflicts of interest through staff training, project screening, and a policy of mandatory disclosure; and pursue transparency in our research engagements through our commitment to the open publication of our research findings and recommendations, disclosure of the source of funding of published research, and policies to ensure intellectual independence.
