Our Education program empowers students to achieve personal and professional goals, such as acquiring basic literacy skills, earning a High School Equivalency diploma, preparation for employment, and encouragement to pursue higher education. Participants have the opportunity to develop essential reading, writing, math, and computer skills..
Every agency listed in Connections has been contacted in order to provide you with current and relevant information. Where listings could not be verified by phone, the organization’s website was used to check basic program and contact information. Please be advised that the moment Connections is printed, it is out of date.
Work affirms humanity and demonstrates to our men and women their inherent ability to provide for their families and contribute to the rebuilding of our community. Employment for court-involved youth and returning citizens is critical to stabilizing people and supporting their desires to become change makers and community leaders.
Our employment program, GOSOWorks, connects job-ready participants to subsidized internship-to-employment opportunities with employer partners in a range of sectors across the city. When an intern is placed with an employer partner, GOSO provides wages up to the first 240 hours of work, after which employers can directly hire a participant.
Fresh Start will provide comprehensive supportive services to our students and refer them to partners for housing, substance-misuse, and other needs, all to ensure they stay stable and healthy. Intensive case management is recognized as the best practice in reducing recidivism for recently released ex-offenders.
