Why 5 and Go ?

We are experiencing a crisis of loneliness and disconnection in the United States and around the world, and young people are some of the hardest hit.

The great news is that by having more positive in-person interactions, we can boost our mental health, our physical health, and strengthen our communities and society…

What is 5 and Go! and how does it work?

5 and Go! gets you out in the real world, interacting with real people through short, fun, playful challenges that will brighten your day and uplift your friends and community.

Does my playing really help other people?

Yes. When you interact with others, they also get the benefits of social interaction, so you’ll be giving their mental and physical health a boost too. Many of our challenges are also designed specifically to enable you to bring joy to the people you interact with, whether they are close friends or complete strangers. It feels awesome to make others happy.

Who will I play with?

You can play the Daily challenges solo or play any partner challenge with a friend.

What kind of challenges will I play? Can I design challenges for my friends?

Daily challenges are played solo and involve short, fun interactions with your friends or community.

Partner challenges are played with friends and can get more creative and silly: build things, find hidden objects and spaces, invent new dance moves, lead a social experiment.

Location challenges are played with friends and are tied to specific locations and landmarks (e.g. a museum) and can only be played when you are physically at that location.

You can also design your own partner challenges to play with friends. From the More menu, select “Challenges,” then “Designed by You,” then “Design New Challenge.”

What are Location Challenges?

Location Challenges are partner challenges that can only be played at a particular location, like a specific museum or park. You can view the list of locations by pressing play and then swiping right to Location Challenges and tapping the pin icon. If there’s a location near you that you want us to add, please let us know!
