Speak Lyfe & Breathe Sessions

Speak Lyfe & Breathe sessions were designed to help when coping with mental health battles such as; anxiety, depression, addiction, stress management and suicidal thoughts. With these sessions, we use guided meditation and affirmations to calm the mind and replace any negative thoughts with positive thinking. We​ will begin the session with conversation based on a relatable topic, which will allow the women to release. The overall goal in this session is to remind them of the greatness that is already inside of them. By hearing the testimonies of others, we believe they will be empowered to embrace loving who they are and be strengthened by the courage of others.​

GED Tutoring

Wise Teachings has created a program specifically to meet the needs of our clients. Our goal is to reconnect adult learners to innate learning skills and foster their development. In order to increase success, learners will be introduced to Math and Reading using different techniques. Participants will be divided into groups based off of how they learn best when introduced with new material. Once the participant has mastered the skill, the material will be reintroduced using alternate techniques. There will also be a reintroduction of basic reading skills to reassess missed opportunities in previous teachings. The GED Tutoring Program will be set aside from the rest as the goal is not to teach to the test but to teach for success.

One on One & Group Support 

Our clients will meet weekly with our Reentry Peer Support Specialist. Clients are able to share their stories, challenges, and coping strategies while holding one another accountable for their actions; both positive and negative. The group setting allows clients to feel more empowered, and provides a sense of togetherness while one on one support allows a client's individual needs to be met. Group sessions will discuss various topics and clients will check in, provide feedback to each other, perform an activity, and close with an "assignment" to follow up with during the next session.
