Project Build Summer ExtremeProject Build Summer Extreme was created to allow the boys to spend their summers in a structured environment. Each day starts with prayer services, followed by two hours of Jewish learning. Groups of approximately five boys are then dispatched, together with a foreman, to different construction sites. Sample jobs include building decks, demolition work, painting and a variety of other building tasks. Each night, members of the community host the group for a barbeque followed by swimming or other recreational activities. In Summer 2013, there were 40 young men that participated in the program. This schedule allows for very little time for the young men to fall back into destructive behavior, attend parties or seek out old friends and habits.
