I Am Project

The I AM project is a core component of the REFUGE workshop. The project challenges young men to think critically about their lives and their choices. The I AM Project motivates participants to express themselves confidently, peacefully and lovingly with positive affirmations. The REFUGE workshop begins and ends with “I AM” statements, and intimate portraits by photographer, Lamont Wilson, in an effort to gauge the holistic effectiveness of REFUGE’s mindfulness activities.
