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, integrate 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.
