For an additional Participant Success Manager to support the expansion of the GOSO program’s integrated mental health and supportive services efforts which seek to remove the barriers that often prevent legal system-involved youths from getting access to mental health care. By employing a team of licensed social workers, referred to as Participant Success Managers (“PSMs”), who provide individualized clinical case management, GOSO addresses the multiple issues that often prevent participants from reaching the goals necessary by which to break the generational barriers that result in legal-system involvement, low education levels, and lack of employment. GOSO’s PSMs are trained to understand and respond to the fact that many legal system-involved youth have experienced a significant amount of trauma during childhood and incarceration. GOSO’s PSMs are central to providing the supportive care that participants need to then better pursue their educational and employment goals. GOSO is dedicated to “drastically reducing recidivism and further involvements with the criminal justice system” by young men aged 16 to 24 “through supportive counseling, education, vocational training, and employment services focused on meaningful employment and financial self-sufficiency.”
