About Our Partnership with

What services do we provide?

Team Wilderness is a nonprofit organization that uses an experiential educational model to teach Jersey City teenagers teamwork, leadership, and character.

The organization helps to promote confidence in youth, consideration for their peers, passion for the world they live in, and resilience both as an individual and a group. Facing physical and social challenges, they learn to adapt and develop real-life problem-solving skills while at the same time overcoming fears and obstacles.

What does building a Culture of Health mean to Team Wilderness as an organization?

Team Wilderness builds a Culture of Health in Jersey City by taking urban youth out of their comfort-zone and into the wilderness. Through mental and physical challenges our teens recognize what is necessary to be their best self and live a healthy and balanced life. Since we cater to the youth from the Jersey City community, we help positively impact the community itself. We hope to ensure that all the neighborhoods in Jersey City can participate in the city’s renaissance.

Jersey City teens celebrate after rappelling down a waterfall.  After overcoming the physical challenge of the hike to the waterfall they next have to overcome the mental challenge of rappelling down it.
