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 on a weekly basis and continue leading them along the path to success.
To help diffuse the stress often associated with holidays, Project Extreme offers inspiring retreats for certain Jewish holidays. These joyous occasions present an opportunity for teens to relax in a pressure-free environment infused with the holiday elements that resonate with each participant.
Project Extreme’s Weekend Retreats offers 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.
