Reducing recidivism through education, job training and direct employment./
GOSO has established itself as one of the most effective reentry programs in the NYC area for 16 to 24 year-old men at Rikers Island. Fewer than 15% of GOSO participants return to jail, as compared to a national average of 67% for their age group. Over the past ten years we’ve proven that early intervention within the criminal justice system, along with supportive counseling, educational support, vocational training, and workforce development works to reduce recidivism and help our participants become contributing members of their communities.
