Welcome ! Education Pays – Get Yours is a pilot social marketing campaign targeting youth in the Mt. Pleasant, Slavic Village and Central neighborhoods of Cleveland, Ohio. The campaign started in December 2008 and is moving into its' final phase. You may have seen Education Pays-Get Yours billboards, bus signs, radio and tv ads, posters distributed by our street teams, etc. As part of the final push at promoting the importance of education we have established web blogs for each neighborhood. These social networking tools will give residents an opportunity to discuss the campaign and the importance of getting an education.

Sustainability Conference Day Two

Heavy turnout again at the convention center downtown. Hundreds of skits as participants display
their dreams for a sustainable community. Yesterday there were four teenagers who won awards for their essays detailing how they would improve their neighborhood and their city. I can't help but wonder if there shouldn't be more kids here ... maybe from the neighborhoods of Slavic Village, Mt. Pleasant, and the Central Neighborhoods.
