Breakfree Youth Design Group uses sewing, design and entrepreneurship to educate, mentor and empower young people in Philadelphia. Combining creativity with technical training, Breakfree taps students' interest in business and personal style, building confidence, skills and a new attitude about work and learning. Classes take place at hosting sites throughout Philadelphia. Youth participants create eco-urban style clothing and accessories using recycled materials. They market their handmade wares at local venues, including the Red House, Breakfree's storefront boutique headquarters and studio space in East Falls.
