Breaking Free: Better Choices + Better Relationships
FCSSGW has created a unique program for both male and female youth between the ages of 12 and 17, who have been abused or have witnessed abuse in the home and are heading down the same path in their lives – acting out with aggression, bullying and violence. The eight week group program, currently offered at St. John Bosco school, teaches healthy, appropriate strategies for managing stress and resolving conflict.

The students who graduate from this program work as peers for other students and are extremely passionate about the program and the facilitators. They know they are being heard, respected and are learning alternative methods to bullying and violence – and they demonstrate these new behaviours on a daily basis.

Breaking Free assists teens learn to break  the cycle of abuse and violence so that they learn to make better choices for themselves.
