To provide future generations with the ability to maintain healthy overall wellbeing, The "I Am" Project teaches kids self-care tools that combat daily stress and anxiety.
The "I Am" Project aims to give students an outlet to heal social anxiety, relieve stress, and express emotions in healthy ways.
