The Alabama Healthy Marriage and Relationship Education, or AHMRE, project is currently registering couples for classes beginning the week of Oct. 17. Monday night classes are virtual and Tuesday night classes will be held in Auburn, near campus. Participants choose which day works best for them.

The AHMRE project wants people to invest in their couple relationship and earn money for survey and program completion while they do it.

Participants have the option of choosing which day works best for them and their partner. Participants will be randomly assigned to a weekly series (attend classes once a week for six weeks) or a monthly series (attend classes one a month for six months.)

All classes are free, held in the evening from 6-8 p.m. with meals, childcare support and transportation support offered for each class session, if needed. Additionally, 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.

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. Participants will also be eligible for a program completion payment of $30 (per person) if they complete all six sessions.
