Launch Month is an immersive, 4-week short-term, cohort-based experience for young adults (18-26) looking to jumpstart their future. Through wilderness and adventure-based experiences infused with Jewish values, Launch Month promotes self-reflection and community connection, while helping participants build a toolkit to face life’s challenges.

Launch Month this year will be held August 18 to September 15, 2019, and includes Wilderness Experiences like Backcountry Living and Challenge by Choice, Clinical Intervention – Individual, Group and Family therapy, all within a Jewish Framework – Jewish Metaphor, Storytelling, and Community.

Every masa, or backcountry excursion, and therapeutic exercise is crafted to simultaneously support and challenge each individual student, allowing them to discover who they are, who they want to be, where they want to go, and how they’re going to get there. Individual therapy, group therapy, and regular processing debriefs are woven into the program structure to give space for intentional reflection, learning, and growth.
