Fall News from the Cor Foundation


We are in full swing for the fall! We have student workshops on the calendar and exciting events around the corner. Check out our highlights from October!

Serving Schools in Columbus and Cleveland, Ohio

  • We delivered two all-day training events with Mentor High School and a new school partner, Vermillion High School. Read the article from their local newspaper.
  • Shane delivered an invited presentation at the Ohio Association of Secondary School Administrators (OASSA) Conference to 60+ Principals.

A Grant from the Department of Justice

  • In collaboration with Jennifer Panagopoulos of Xero Associates, we will adapt our in-person training of Preventing Problems by Promoting Positive Practices for School Resource Officers to an e-learning course. This training teaches SROs to build relationships, use community policing, and reduce the school-to-prison pipeline among minority students.

More Grants

  • We received grants with two more community-based partners.
  • In collaboration with Marion-Crawford Prevention Services, we will train a Youth Advisory Council and three high schools in Marion-Crawford counties of Ohio.
  • In collaboration with Impact Prevention, we will train students in 4+ middle and high schools in Ironton, OH.
