The Alabama Healthy Marriage & Relationship Education, or AHMRE, Project wants you to invest in your couple relationship and earn money for survey completion while you do it. We are currently registering couples for class offerings beginning Monday, April 18 or Tuesday, April 19.

• Classes are held in person on Auburn University’s campus on Mondays and Tuesdays in Opelika at the Opelika Public Library.• You have the option of choosing which day/location works best for you and your partner.• Whichever day you pick, you will be randomly assigned to a weekly series in which you will attend classes once a week for 6 weeks, or a monthly series in which you will attend classes one a month for 6 months.

All classes are free and held in the evening from 6-8 p.m., with dinner being provided beginning at 5:30 p.m. Childcare and transportation supports are offered for each class session if needed.

All class offerings will present ELEVATE, an evidence-based relationship education program that teaches couples how to take their relationships to the next level by focusing on core relationship skills. Here is a video that shows what our classes look like, and another video explaining the project further.

All couples who register will have the opportunity to participate in a program impact study and receive payment for completing four surveys over one year. Each person can earn up to $160 over one year for completing the impact study surveys, or $320 per couple. You’ll also be eligible for a program completion payment of $30 per person if you complete all six sessions.

If you are interested or have any questions you can contact us at or 334-844-8715.
