As of August 15, 2021, Project U.S.E. programs are on hiatus as we assess the evolving community health protocols and prioritize the safety of our participants. We hope to be running programs again shortly. Please check back later for more information.

Wildcat Mountain Wilderness Center

Our Wildcat Program provides outdoor adventures to thousands of young people and adults every year.  Our adventures are designed to support New Jersey’s Core Curriculum Content Standards (NJCCS) in the areas of Character Education, Environmental Education, and Service Learning in a manner that is fun, challenging, and memorable.  The Wildcat Program is primarily based at our Wildcat Mountain Wilderness Center nestled deep within a 50,000-acre natural area in northern New Jersey.  In these beautiful, scenic surroundings, participants can hike and backpack, challenge themselves using teambuilding initiative activities, rock climb, rappel, experience high and low ropes courses, and canoe.

Pedal Farmers, Project U.S.E.

Pedal Farmers

The Pedal Farmers program has engaged young adults from Newark in urban gardening and horticulture every summer, beginning in 2007.  The program is designed to provide job training, develop business and entrepreneurship skills, and allow for students to give back to their community through various service projects.

Students in the Pedal Farmers program also develop a business and marketing plan to sell products created with organic produce at a weekly Farmers market in downtown Newark at PSEG Plaza.  The students share in the profits of their business, and also donate a portion of their profits to nonprofits serving their local community in Newark.
