Participate in Upcoming Research



  • As a young person, you are in the group most impacted by decisions made by individuals who are working to ensure your safety, well-being and academic success. So it makes sense that we take time to hear from you about what matters most to you, what your thoughts are, and what needs to happen to support young people like you.
  • ACYI is an organization working with educators and other community leaders to help young people living in Adams county be successful. By participating in a TEGA Interview, you will be helping inform our work so that we can understand more about what its like to be a young person and what we should be doing to help you be successful, healthy and happy.


ANYONE who lives or goes to school in Adams County and who wants to help make a difference.


  • You will be interviewed ‘conversation’ style by one of our Technology Enabled Girl Ambassadors (TEGAs).
  • Our TEGAs use apps on mobile phones to help capture your input.
  • You will have the opportunity to be filmed and recorded so that we can capture this information directly from you.
  • Interviews/Conversations are about 30 minutes long.
  • At the end of your interview, you will have the opportunity to delete your responses if you decide you don’t wish for us to use them. This option is built in to give you full control over what you share with us.
