R3 Academy Enrollment Process
Healthy Relationships California (HRC) offers the R3 Academy for Couples free of charge to California residents thanks to a federal grant that offsets all the costs for the program. HRC is required to enroll participants with the following multi-step process.
In addition to offering the R3 Academy, HRC is also researching the impact our programs have on participants. Prior to starting the program, an R3 Academy Representative will call to give you a survey that asks general questions about your relationship with your partner. All responses are confidential. (Note, steps 3 and 4 can be done at the same time).
After Step 4 is completed, you’ll be officially enrolled to attend an R3 Academy.
You also will be contacted several times throughout the workshop by an assigned R3 Academy Coach, who can provide referrals to additional support resources.
