Our mission is to radically improve education in the juvenile and criminal justice systems by investing in the potential and dignity of all its students.

We partner directly with juvenile justice agencies across the country, providing the resources, training, and networks they need to make school relevant and meaningful.  

We develop quality educational programs that inspire and engage students held in confinement and get them excited about their education. 

We work with policymakers to shape the world we want to see – one where our young people have the education and support needed to reach their full potential.

Effective August 2016, BreakFree Education began directly running schools in New Orleans.
