What Makes GO Great?
Two high school interns recently posed this question to GO staff, teachers, volunteers, interns, and students. See their responses in the below video made for the GO Getters program.
American Graduate Day 2013
The GO Project was featured on American Graduate Day, a multi-platform event committed to helping communities tackle the nation’s dropout crisis and preparing students for success with a high school diploma. The broadcast premiered live on Saturday, September 28 on PBS and streamed live from the Tisch WNET Studios at Lincoln Center.
The event featured local and national programming, community partners, and celebrities focused on improving the high school graduation rates in America. Nearly 30 national partner organizations, 14 local organizations, and celebrity guests involved in education and youth intervention programs participated. In 2013, the GO Project was honored to be chosen as a local New York City partner organization.
The GO segment, featuring two GO parents and a GO teacher, can be viewed below. For more information on American Graduate Day, please visit: http://americangraduate.org/.
