Intercept Program for At-Risk Youth and Troubled Teens
Today is the day. To make positive choices. To embrace my potential. To realize I can change my path.
You find yourself trying to look at the world through your teen's eyes. You see a rocky and unsettling road from adolescence to adulthood, filled with potholes, perils and teen-age pitfalls. You want to lend a hand. We can help.
Outward Bound offers Intercept wilderness expeditions year-round for teens and young adults beginning to demonstrate destructive behaviors. Intercept expeditions are designed to help students and parents discover the basis of hope for a happier and more productive future--recognizing strengths, good intent, understanding and potential. The challenging expedition "airlifts" your teen out of what may be unhealthy routines or negative environments into awe-inspiring surroundings where he or she can gain a fresh perspective on life. You'll join us for the last three days of the program, in a pivotal and productive workshop with instructors and your child.
Intercept is the recipient of the Society for Adolescent Medicine's 2009 Hillary E.C. Millar Award for Innovative Approaches to Adolescent Health Care, cited for working with challenging teens in such a positive manner that ultimately affects their health as it is directed at positive developmental milestones and well-being.

Our award-winning programs for struggling youth and troubled teens provide real life challenges in a structured environment and are recognized for their ability to foster positive development and well-being for troubled teens.
