Text, Talk, Ready Set Go

Starting college comes with a whole range of emotions and, often, mental health challenges. That’s why JED created Text, Talk, Ready Set Go, a free, interactive tool to help college students adjust to their first year. 

We launched TTRSG last fall, enabling college students from across the country to build a peer support network through texting and small group discussions, while developing self-care strategies and learning how to reach out for help when they need it.

This is a great activity for orientation or other beginning-of-the-year events, University 101 courses, or in residence halls or other student transition programs.

Interested in supporting your students with this free, interactive activity next year? Stay tuned for updates about our Fall 2023 campaign!
