Interesting summer opportunity for homeschoolers and their friends!

The Peer Relations Lab at the University of Maine is currently recruiting youth for the Maine Adolescent Peer Project (MAPP). This study is for youth ages 13 to 17. Youth will visit the lab with a friend of their choosing, answer questions about their friendship and feelings, and be observed while interacting with their friend. About three and six months later, youth will be contacted to complete some follow-up questionnaires. Youth and their friends can earn up to $60 for completing the project (one 5-minute screening to determine eligibility, one 90-minute lab visit, and two online follow-up questionnaires three and six months later that would each take 60 minutes). Permission from a parent or guardian is required.

For more information and to schedule an appointment, visit, call 581.2757, email the MAPP team, [email protected], or contact Peer Relations Lab director Rebecca Schwartz-Mette, 581.2048; [email protected].
