Food is Fuel for Success at GOSO

As a community-based organization, GOSO strives to create a community-minded atmosphere that will help our guys thrive emotionally, which allows them to thrive in the areas of education and employment (the Three E’s!). Workshops, programs, conversations, laughter, games and art — all of these are considered central to that mission. 

In Their Own Words: Marvin B.

I grew up in Harlem; it’s where I went to school, played basketball, all of that. At a young age, I got caught up in things that led me to Rikers Island when I was 16 years old. When I came out after 1 year there, I was working towards doing something good with my life, and then I got caught up in a different situation that wasn’t my fault. Everyone that I knew was arrested. That’s when I went to prison upstate, where I spent 25 months.

GOSOGives: Gardening with Concrete Safaris!

We hope you’ve been following along with our GOSOGives projects since we launched the program in January! GOSO participants and volunteers have engaged with and supported their communities through a variety of service projects in our area. It’s a great way for participants and volunteers to work side-by-side, on a peer level, to foster connections. These enriching experiences have taught GOSO Guys invaluable skills, including teamwork, leadership, philanthropy and more.⁣
