GOSO Holiday Party!

The holiday season just wouldn’t be the same without our favorite annual tradition: our participant holiday party! With 2018 coming to a close and 2019 on the horizon, we took the opportunity to celebrate our participants’ hard work and accomplishments, as we always do — with an awards ceremony! This year’s awards ceremony took place at Harlem Tavern, where more than 50 GOSO clients showed up to celebrate a year of growth and exceptional outcomes.

Special thank you to our Councilmember and partner Diana Ayala, who GOSO honored this year for her support of GOSO and SAVE and especially for her commitment to bettering the lives of the young people we serve.

These awards are far from ordinary, in fact, each one reflects the unique personality and talents of the person who receives it — no two are the same! The awards are also symbols of the strength of the relationships between participants and Career Managers at GOSO. Our Career Managers spend the majority of their time getting to know each participant and supporting them through different milestones in their lives. The bonds formed make our work that much more meaningful. We stay true to our goal of making sure every GOSO Guy feels seen, heard, and appreciated.

We’re so proud of our participants’ successes in 2018 and are looking forward to many more in the new year!

Happy Holidays from GOSO and we thank you for being a part of our family! We hope you enjoy some highlights from last night below:
