WHO WE ARE

Founder and Executive Director, Damion Cooper, birthed Project Pneuma in 2014 after a near death experience of being shot an inch above the heart at point-blank range. He began a healing journey of his own to teach lessons of forgiveness, self-control, discipline and redemption via mentorship. While mentoring a young man in prison during his years in Seminary, he discovered that his mentee was the assailant who shot him years earlier.

Project Pneuma prepares our boys with the tools for a life-long journey in terms of developing impulse control, building respectful relationships, developing our principles, values, and reaching their full potential as human beings.

Project Pneuma implements the practice of Martial Arts. Our boys learn to understand the power of mind over body in our Martial Art practices. This cultivates our young men into Pneuma Warriors with integrity, perseverance, and honor.

Project Pneuma understands with time and practice, a child’s communication skills and increased confidence will excel. They will also be well versed in all aspects of their lives which will be an asset for years to come.
