The AGTO Approach


What is Assets™ Getting To Outcomes® (AGTO)?

Assets Getting To Outcomes (AGTO) is a model and intervention used by community-based prevention coalitions. The program is based on two, complimentary, community-based interventions:

1. Getting To Outcomes (GTO), which enhances community capacity to complete critical prevention tasks (e.g., evaluation), and

2. Developmental Assets, which supports community mobilization and collaboration to promote positive youth development.

AssetsTM Getting To Outcomes® (AGTO): The Framework

Getting To Outcomes (GTO). GTO® is an implementation support model—specifying the ten steps (or sets of activities) prevention practitioners should take when carrying out high-quality programming. GTO presents each step as a question which can be used to guide practitioners to complete those steps. There are six steps for planning activities (steps 1-6), two steps for process and outcome evaluation (7-8), and two steps on the use of data to improve and sustain programs (9-10).
