About Us

The Mission of Project Pneuma is to Breathe New Life holistically into the young men we serve by challenging them intellectually, strengthening them physically, nurturing them emotionally and uplifting them spiritually.

The Vision of Project Pneuma is to strive to teach our young men the art of forgiveness, self-control and discipline while giving them exposure to a new world of endless possibilities.

Project Pneuma will focus on teaching our young men forgiveness and self-control through meditation, yoga, breathing techniques and focus drills because many of their issues result from impulse actions;

discipline through martial arts and intense physical training; and exposure to different cultures and locations because so many of them have never experienced life outside of Baltimore.
