IN TRANSITION TO OUR NEXT DESTINATION
Youth Passage is a community-based program that guides, enriches and uplifts adolescence into their self knowing so that they may step into their adulthood with confidence.
Conversation based + Writing (or drawing) + Guided Meditation + Creative Visualization
Passage’s vision is to support young people as they transition from adolescence to young adulthood and find their place in the world as both active and purposeful contributors.
Youth explore, create and define their own framework and roles for the following principles:
Values & Virtue (Embodiment)
Potential & Power (Expression)
Application & Purpose (Creativity)
Interdependence & Relationships (Communication)
Through dialogue, mentorship and exposure Youth Passage encourages young people to critically think and self-assess to ensure that their intentions and values align with their actions and purpose. We know that with proper guidance, support, and repetition adolescents can and will develop behavioral patterns that can lead them to living healthy and successful lives. Each year ends with a rites of passage ceremony honoring and celebrating adolescent participants for their commitment within this transition as they move into adulthood.
