- Youth Village
Wilderness therapy is a unique tool developed abroad and adapted to conditions in Israel in general and Nirim specific needs in particular. It is one of the principal devices we use, that allows us to make the dramatic breakthrough and integrate the tools and values that our youth need in order to rewrite the story of their lives.
Wilderness Therapy is a major Nirim tool. ODT and survival activities are a vital part of the program and a transforming experience for the teens. An integral part of this rehabilitative process is the inclusion of our therapy team in all of the wilderness activities. Their supervision, direction and one-on-one care are crucial elements in supporting the youth emotionally and psychologically.
Nirim in the Neighborhoods' youth become part of weekly wilderness therapeutic activities and 3-4 survival treks every year.
