Project Extreme Empowers At Risk and off the derech, Jewish teens to make positive choices

Through a broad portfolio of both short and long term programs, Project Extreme programs are designed to assist troubled 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 for boys & girls

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

weekend retreats helping traumatized depressed depression youth


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


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

All Ages

By pairing teenagers with experienced young adult 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 for maintaining contact with participants and continuing to lead them along the path to success.
