GOSO is proud to announce the opening of a 2,200sf center that will serve as a home base for its robust TASC (GED) high school equivalency and vocational education programs. Founded in 2003, Getting Out and Staying Out works with justice system-involved young people ages 16-24 both inside Rikers Island and after release. The organization provides access to education, mental health services, skills training and job placement programs with the goal of creating a supportive platform for emotional stability and economic self-sufficiency. The new center will double the training and education capacity of GOSO’s East Harlem headquarters, and will include a fully-equipped classroom for high school equivalency classes, a tutoring room and a separate vocational education space where GOSO will provide OSHA, scaffolding and flagging skills trainings for construction, food service training and more.
Ribbon-Cutting to celebrate the opening of GOSO’s new Education Center facility. Attendees will be able to tour the new facility and learn about GOSO’s educational initiatives, counseling, work-readiness, paid internships, and job-placement programs. Refreshments will be served.
