The Challenge Program

The challenge program is a combination of prevention and treatment services. This is a combined effort between The Council for Prevention and Glens Falls Hospital’s Center for Recovery. We provide weekly group meetings, individual treatment with a LMSW, and challenging outings which vary in length and activity: hiking, camping, canoeing, kayaking, snowshoeing, mini-golfing, etc.

Youth Court

Youth Court is a law-related educational program for volunteer youth in 7th-12th grades and an alternative to the criminal justice system for young people ages 10-18, who have committed a crime, offense, or violation. The goal of Youth Court is to intervene in early anti-social, delinquent, and criminal behavior by asking the offending youth to accept responsibility before a jury of their peers.
