At Project Harmony we take the individual as the cornerstone. All curricula are tailored to meet individual developmental, behavioral and linguistic needs, and couched in the principles of universal youth development. We believe that by creating a safe integrated space for children to share experiences, our campers are able to build organic, lasting relationships--on their own terms.
In order to achieve these programmatic goals we offer a wide variety of daily activities, including fine arts, music, athletics, teambuilding, community gardening, American Sign Language, and English games. We go on weekly field trips and also host guest teachers to lead week-long workshops. Every summer we also host a community event in which we invite families, friends and community members to join us in celebrating our campers' remarkable achievements.
In just five years, Project Harmony has grown from 20 campers and a 5-person staff to 150 campers and a 35-person staff. In 2014-2015 we are focused on developing high quality programming and fostering partnerships with local institutions, scholars, and practitioners. Ultimately we envision expanding the Project Harmony model to multiple campuses, reaching communities beyond Jerusalem.
