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.
GOSO’s Board Members are some of our most valuable volunteers. They share a deep commitment to improving opportunities for at-risk and legal system involved individuals. Board Members have the opportunity to share their experience and expertise, as well as provide support to the organization through financial gifts, in-kind contributions, and cultivating individuals and organizations to support GOSO’s important mission.
May 1st is May Day, traditionally a day to recognize laborers and tradespeople, whether in manufacturing, building arts, landscape management or a variety of other
A goal here at GOSO is to ensure our participants are being connected to new ideas and diverse opportunities. Challenging participants to dive deeper into their passions and think about the future is a crucial part of our work, and employment is one area that benefits from this exercise.
Employment is one of GOSO’s fundamental “Three E’s”: Education, Employment, and Emotional Well-Being. Our robust employment program, GOSOWorks, connects our participants with internship opportunities with over 70 employer partners across New York City. The Internship2Employment model consists of a three-month paid internship (GOSO subsidizes the wages), which can turn into a full-time employment opportunity.
GOSO staff’s work is framed by our Three E’s; each plays an equally critical role in the success of our participants. Education, Employment and Emotional-Well-being: we believe that all three work together to form a foundation on which GOSO Guys can build their futures.
