Woodbury, New Jersey – November 3, 2104. The award-winning Challenge Day program is coming to Woodbury Junior-Senior High School on Tuesday, November 18, 2014. This will be Woodbury City Public School’s sixth time participating in this inspiring program.
Challenge Days are powerful, high-energy workshops in which youth and adult participants are guided through a series of experiential learning processes. The overall goals of the program are to increase personal power and self-esteem, to shift dangerous peer pressure to positive peer support, and to eliminate the acceptability of teasing, violence, and all forms of oppression.
Since 1987, the Challenge Day programs have touched the lives of hundreds of thousands of teens and adults nationwide. The Challenge Day Program has received numerous awards from government officials, the juvenile justice system, and many school districts and cities throughout the nation. The program was also featured in the book “Chicken Soup for the Teenage Soul,” the Emmy Award-winning documentary “Teen Files: Surviving High School,” and the “Oprah Winfrey Show.”
