Actively Recruiting Participants for a New Research Study!

An exciting research study, Youth Experiences with Online Audiences (IRB STU00203901), is currently looking for parents and their 11-12 year old children to participate in our research.  To be eligible for the study, you must have a child between the ages of 10 and 12 who has access to the Internet (either at home or on a personal device such as a smart phone with a data plan). Your child will be asked to participate in an interview for approximately 60 minutes. Caregivers will be asked to participate in a 15-minute survey and 45-minute interview. Your family will receive $30 for participating. Call or email us if you are interested in participating!
