On the Rise (OTR) is a 5-year study funded by the National Institutes of Health. OTR focuses on African American youth, ages 14-19, to explore how their unique life experiences, challenges, and triumphs shape academic success and health. Ultimately, OTR aims to better understand risk and protective factors that influence resilience as youth transition into adulthood. We are currently recruiting participants. Interested youth or families can learn more or sign up below.
