Getting to Outcomes

Wednesday, January 18th, 2017 - 8:00am to 4:00pm

Young people can engage in a variety of negative behaviors—such as drug use, underage drinking, and premarital sex—that exact a high toll on local communities. These activities are often the target of community-based prevention efforts. Getting To Outcomes (GTO), a collaboration between researchers at the RAND Corporation and the University of South Carolina, is a toolkit organized around a 10-step process to help communities plan, implement, and evaluate the impact of their programs that attempt to prevent these negative behaviors. GTO was developed with support from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA).

At the end of this session, participants will be able to:

  1. Identify the purpose of Getting To Outcomes;
  2. Understand each step within Getting To Outcomes and how they are related;
  3. List examples of how to apply each step of Getting To Outcomes;
  4. Assess their organization using the GTO steps;
  5. Identify ways the SC Campaign can help their organization in each GTO step
