Project Extreme Empowers Jewish teens at-risk to make positive choices

Through a broad portfolio of both short and long term programs, Project Extreme programs are designed to assist teens and their families to overcome their many challenges by providing them with life skills training, social support networks, and professional counseling in a positive, healthy environment that is fun, exciting, secure, and highly productive.

Project Extreme Programs:

Camp Extreme

Camp Extreme Boys and Camp Extreme Girls are therapeutic adventure programs. The program includes a multitude of invigorating activities such as camping, white water rafting, mountain biking and more.

weekend retreats for traumatized depressed depression and troubled youth


Project Extreme’s Weekend Retreats offer teens recreational resources such as skiing and snowboarding, along with behavioral skills to negotiate day-to-day challenges. The occasion is also used as an opportunity to review the progress made by participating teenagers and provide them with sustained guidance


Miryam’s House, now in its 8th year, is a transitional living shelter for young women 18 years and older. Miryam’s House offers a safe and growth oriented home for those seeking additional encouragement, life skills support, and healthy communication skills.

All Ages

By pairing teen participants with experienced mentors, Project Extreme ensures that the progress made by at-risk youth during our other programs will not fade or diminish. Mentors sign a social contract stating that they are responsible to maintain contact with participants and continue leading them along the path to success.
