BRAVE Study Recruitment - We R Native needs your help!

We R Native is recruiting 1,500 AI/AN teens and young adults (15-24 years old) nationwide to participate in a study.

Our goal is to evaluate the impact of our text messaging service for Native teens and young adults. Youth who enroll will be randomized to receive either:

  • 8 weeks of BRAVE messages, designed to improve mental health, help-seeking skills, and promote cultural pride and resilience, or
  • 8 weeks of STEM messages, designed to elevate and re-affirm Native voices in science, technology, engineering, and math.

Afterwards, the two groups will switch and participants will receive the other set of messages.

Please encourage students in your community to join the study in September or October, by texting BRAVE to 97779. You can also share our recruitment ads on social media, or post this recruitment flier in your community.
