Our victory for youth and Rites of Passage work

 
Our mission: Insuring that every child on the planet receives a rite of passage and mentorship into adulthood.
I want to share our recent victory with you.

Last weekend we had 26 of the leading lights of Teen Rites of Passage work gather in Oakland to share common challenges and victories, and to probe for ways forward as a collaborative community. Many of the hugely varied modalities of ROP practice were represented, from indigenous traditions 1000s of years old to the latest innovations in public school programs. It was a rich weekend of sharing, a deep exchange of bold visions from a collective 500+ years of experience, a sustained opening of fearless hearts. The list of our illustrious attendees is below. If you're interested, let me know and I'll send you the entire meeting agenda, co-created by many, reflecting the depth, breadth, and soulful wonder of this work. 

Thank you for supporting me so I can support these soul warriors.
