Reducing recidivism through Education, Employment, and Emotional Well-Being.

GOSO has established itself as one of the most effective reentry programs in the New York City area for 16 to 24 year-old, justice-involved men. Fewer than 15% of GOSO participants return to jail, as compared to a national average of 67% for their age group. For more than 16 years, we’ve proven that early intervention within the justice system, along with supportive counseling, educational support, vocational training, and workforce development reduces recidivism and helps our participants become contributing members of their communities.
