Love is in the air, and GOSO wanted to make sure our clients in upstate correctional facilities received warm messages from home this Valentine’s Day. Numerous volunteers, staff, interns, founder Mark L. Goldsmith and our guys came together to craft messages from the heart, to be sent to 250 clients in upstate correctional facilities.
GOSO Co-Founder, President, and CEO Mark L. Goldsmith was delighted to join host Danny Tisdale on his podcast, The Danny Tisdale Show. The two spoke about Mr. Goldsmith’s years of working as an executive in the cosmetic industry, how that experience shaped his approach to working with young men at Rikers Island, and the principles on which Getting Out & Staying Out (GOSO) came to be founded.
Last night GOSO staff members and clients were joined by community leaders, partner organizations and education stakeholders for the grand opening of GOSO’s new Education Center at 1400 Fifth Avenue in Harlem.

The Stargate Theatre Company is a program housed within Manhattan Theatre Club (MTC) in New York. Stargate is focused on “giving voice” to youth who are facing the challenges of poverty, trauma, and involvement in the criminal justice system. During the summer season, their full-time program offers paid positions to these young people, to come and learn how to write, direct, and act in their own stage productions. This not only leads to expanded creativity, but also to improved self-confidence, communication, and critical thinking, and helps develop workforce-readiness.
