Pilot Study: Recruitment Presentation for Teenagers eligible to Participate in the Study To be read by Bellah Kiteki on __________________________

My name is Bellah Kiteki and today I would like first thank you for coming to be part of the study that I am conducting. The main purpose of this study is to get some information from you about how you like or do not like the way you live here in America. This can include your friends, things you like doing that make you happy, and also how life is with your parents. Because majority of you are students in public schools, results of this study may help school counselors and teachers in their work to help you as you settle to live here and others who may be also come to the United States sometime in future.

Some of you may be thinking why you are the only ones selected to participate in this study and not your friends from other countries. This is because this study is focused on African adolescent/teenage refugees from different African countries. I therefore would like to invite you all who are here as participants. I hope that you will be able to answer some questions about your experiences interacting with your friends and peers at your different schools and also your parents or caregivers at home. On the day you will come to complete the forms by answering questions, I will give you four forms with different questions. The forms will be in three languages; English, French, and Kiswahili so you will choose from one of the languages one that will be easy for you to read. All the forms will take you about one hour to complete. The information you provide will be a secret, no one else will have to read it unless I am asked by law to tell, such as if someone tells me about child abuse. All the information you write on the forms will be destroyed after three years.

You will receive a $5 Wal-Mart gift card if you return all forms including the form your parent signs, and complete all the research forms. The results from this research study may be helpful to school counselors, teachers, and people who help others solve their problems in the community in helping you and others here in the United States I know some of you may have fear when you think of writing your names on the forms the time you will be answering the questions. This may cause you to be afraid because you may not want anyone else to know what you think about your friendships or how you live with your parents. Also, some questions may cause some discomfort for you. If you become upset or request help, I will make a referral for you to get counseling. Because of this, I will not ask you to write your names on the forms. Also, I would like to state that your participation in this study is your free choice and you are also free to stop or leave at any time without any punishment. These are some of the things I wanted to let you know before you take the forms to your parents. Do you have any questions for me? It is possible that someone may even have a question later. If so, feel free to call me (phone
