231 Go!

231 Go! is a Community Collaborative focused on supporting intermediate and middle school students living in South Lorain with wrap-around services both inside and outside of the school.

Goal: A community where all 5th through 8th grade students who reside in South Lorain are supported in developing key communication and life skills to help avoid specific risky behaviors - such as smoking, drinking and violence - ultimately leading to safer schools, positive social outcomes, and improved academic performance.

Initiatives: Engage families with targeted and informative learning opportunities, link students with tutors and mentors outside of the school, aintegrate risk-avoidance and healthy choices messaging into coursework,  risky behavior avoidance instruction and messaging within the school and outside the school, fostering volunteerism through multiple community-based after school and expand access to summertime neighborhood programming and activities.

Partners: El Centro de Servicios Sociales | Girl Scouts of Northeast Ohio | Lorain City School District | Lorain County Community College | Lorain Metropolitan Housing Authority | United Way of Greater Lorain County
