Project Breathe is a program establishing freedom of expression utilizing the arts and physicality to reduce the effects of trauma and stress in the lives of teens who exhibit maladaptive behaviors to move them towards prosocial behavior. We construct a wide range of activities that create opportunities for the youth to immerse themselves in a new culture or way of life.
Whether it’s in a group social setting or one-on-one counseling and mentorship. We aspire to mold their cognitive development in hopes of gaining pragmatic social evolution within the community. We are confident that Project Breathe can positively impact the lives of teens by presenting an auspicious lifestyle where you can recover and feel better through artistic expression such as painting, sketching, mindfulness meditation, creative writing etc.
Project Breathe creates the pathway for teens discovering their journey of self-improvement while building a tranquil lifestyle with healthy habits.

- Power within their knowledge, individual capabilities, self-esteem, and self-belief to make changes in their lives, including learning skills for jobs or entrepreneurship.
- Power to acknowledge such economic decision-making within their household, community, and local economy (including markets) not just in areas that are traditionally regarded as women’s realm but extending to areas that are traditionally regarded as men’s realm.
- Power over sustainable access and control in financial literacy including access to employment and income-generation activities.
