- Youth Village
Nature is an unfamiliar territory to most teens. In nature, they can achieve a set of goals and rebuild their identity. This is an environment that provides tangible challenges, with results providing instant and clear feedback. "I was able to climb this impossible mountain! I can probably do some other things which I thought were impossible."
Our experience shows that Wilderness Therapy is a key rehabilitative component, employing challenging outdoor activities that strengthen self-confidence and leadership abilities and promote a sense of self-empowerment. The program elements are powerful, using survival skills, marine challenge activities and pre-army preparation courses as intensive therapeutic methods.
The climax is a five-day survival trip taking place in a rough desert environment. Each youth is confronted with personal, physical and emotional challenges enabling achievements far beyond expectations with positive consequences reflected in every aspect of their future lives.
Nirim's professional staff assimilates a thorough therapeutic process as part of all wilderness activities. Their supervision, direction and one-on-one attention are crucial elements supporting our youth both emotionally and psychologically.
