Life Skills and Job/Education Skills Program

Breaking Free believes that every woman should have a chance to learn and grow. During our weekly Life Skills Groups we bring you opportunities to focus on your well-being and the well-being of your family. We discuss topics about physical health & wellness, mental/emotional health, chemical health/relapse prevention, financial literacy, and creative expression.

Life Skills group meets every Wednesday from 9am to 2:30pm in St. Paul.
Breakfast is served before group and lunch is also served. Supervised play is provided. Please talk to your case manager for the location and more information.

Job/Education Skills Groups are provided through one-on-one meetings and weekly classes designed specifically for survivors, focusing on higher education, soft skill development, work experience development, and employment readiness. Breaking Free has formed partnerships with several local employment and work readiness organizations to help prepare you for the job market as well as to encourage you to complete your G.E.D. and seek higher education.

Job/Education Skills classes meet every Tuesday 2:30-4:30pm and Thursday 9:30-11:30am at Lifetrack computer lab. The same topic is presented on Tuesday and Thursday; you only need to attend one. You will learn various skills related to computer, education, and careers.

You are also able to use the computer lab during weekly Open Lab times (Monday 1-2:30pm, Wednesday 3-4:30pm) to receive support with computer skills, creating or updating resumes, or finding a job (to name a few!).

One-on-one meetings can be scheduled with staff at the Lifetrack computer lab or with the Career Advancement Coordinator at Breaking Free. Please call Breaking Free to learn more about all these great opportunities!
