Steps to Enroll in the R3 Academy

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 a multi-step process. Due to limited space per R3 Academy and the high demand to attend, completing the enrollment process as soon as possible is advised.

Step 1:

Complete an online survey to ensure you are eligible for the free R3 Academy for Couples. To be eligible, you need to live in California and enroll with your partner. Applicants must be 18 years of age or older.

Step 2:

Read and sign the Consent Form that is at the end of the Eligibility Survey, and confirm receipt of the Privacy Statement you’ll receive via email.

Step 3:

Complete a confidential demographic survey, conducted by phone with an R3 Academy Representative.

Step 4:

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 child/children and your partner/co-parent. 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.

Fully enrolled participants will receive a shipment prior to the first session that includes the course curricula, an R3 Academy polo shirt, and other program materials.

You also will be contacted several times throughout the workshop by an assigned R3 Academy Coach, who can provide referrals to additional support resources.
