As part of our ongoing program, all teens at risk together with special needs, will attend 18 meetings twice a month so they benefit from our methodology and will develope individualy and as a group.
DELGATIONS TO NEW YORK
For 4 years we took Israeli youth at risk to Camp Ramapo in the US in order for them to benefit from the Ramapo approach of setting and maintaining goals and aspirations. Evrey year Israeli teen at risks and with dpecial needs were selected from a special school to be campers at Ramapo USA. RAMAPO also offers a wide range of activities such as swimming, ropes courses, sports, camping and workshops in art.
The NPO offers workshops and lectures to raise awareness among others of the organization's educational philosophy, understanding and coping with marginal populations, involvement and social entrepreneurship. In addition, informative workshops are held on special needs and other educational activities.
The lectures and workshops are suitable for all ages and are cusotmized for the event and the target audience.

Lectures and workshops
My Piece of the Puzzle is a registered NPO in Israel that caters to the needs of underprivileged youth at risk and youth with special needs. We believe that every child deserves the chance to feel successful, loved and an equal member of society.
The initiative and inspiration to establish this organization in Israel came from working at camp Ramapo in the USA which instilled the desire to provide Israeli youth at risk with the tools needed to become contributing members of society in a secure and successful manner.
The NPO serves teens at risk and children with special needs such as autism, Down syndrome and fragile X, developing the two populations and preparing them to live successfully and function in today’s society, all while experiencing fun.
