‘It’s easier to build strong children than to repair broken men” – Fredrick Douglas

The Inspiration Amongst Manifestation (I.A.M.) Project is an organization that encourages teens to focus on what’s most important before becoming fully functional citizens; discovering who they are! Through creative writing and self expression our participants are challenged through life coaching, critical thinking, vocabulary improvement and group activities to identify with their strengths, embracing their purpose and building from a platform from a blueprint they learn to establish. The I AM Project promotes multiple literacy programs to teens and young adults, ranging from ages 14 to 19.

The I AM Project was founded Dec. 13th, 2013 by Michael McGrew, owner of Legacy Publishing Group LLC in Los Angeles. While touring schools as a speaker, Michael began to notice a need for students to understand that literacy doesn’t only consist of reading books but improving personal success through self-improvement based on personal desires to accomplish goals. A firm believer of Self accountability, Michael McGrew’s passion to incorporate literacy with goal setting to achieve success flourished after the I AM Project organization.

Being literate on all levels allows people to have better control of their futures.  Families and individuals can break the cycle of poverty.

The end result of our programs is to provide lower income students with the necessary tools to thrive in the real world. The organization focuses on five types of literacy:

  • Writers Workshop
  • Business Literacy
  • Health and Wellness,
  • Financial Literacy

The writer’s workshop will be fully functional during the school year, while the four additional programs will be taught on a quarterly basis.  The organization is sponsored by Challenging Minds Charter School and considered a 501(c) (3) charitable foundation.
