The Street Team is now the R3Crew!

STAND has been awarded funding for a Community and Academic Research Award (CARA) in a brand new pilot project from the Tobacco Related Disease Research Program (TRDRP).

STAND (Sacramento Taking Action Against Nicotine Dependence) recruits, trains and maintains a team of college students called the R3Crew. R3 stands for research, resource and reach out and Crew is the team. R3Crew members help other students kick tobacco and tobacco-related products. R3Crew is currently active at Sacramento City College. They go to where other students hang out and bring free smoking cessation help to those who want to quit.

The R3Crew is more than a research project. It’s a chance to fight back. To fight the tobacco industry that spends billions of dollars every year targeting young adults for a life-long addiction.

STAND is looking for college students to become R3Crew members. Members will be part of this community research project, which is a partnership with STAND and UC Davis. R3Crew members can receive a stipend, earn a national certification in behavioral research, enjoy a flexible schedule, receive a letter of recommendation and get swag (R3Crew gear). This is great opportunity to make a difference at Sacramento City College (Looks great on a resume too). Click here to complete a membership application or *text R3Crew to 31996 Once we receive your application, we will contact you and provide more information about the opportunity!

If you currently use any type of tobacco, and would like to be a participant in the program, please complete an interest form.  As a participant you will receive help to quit using tobacco or tobacco-related products and up to $50 in gift cards.
