Passageways Day 2017: An International Day of Reflection & Dialog

This October 14th, join folks from around the world in setting time aside to reflect on and discuss how we’re marking, supporting, and celebrating our young people’s passage into adulthood, and how that marking brings us into greater relationship with ourselves, our communities, and the world we live in!

Passageways Day is one day set out of the year to gather as communities with the central goal of generating meaningful dialogue. Whereas so much of our lives is about doing as much as we can, as quickly as possible, Youth Passageways invites us to focus on the dually important tasks of slowing down and dreaming into the big questions with open minds and open hearts.

We believe that no matter what modern challenge we’re talking about, from climate change to inequality, the solution begins with our youth. So we invite you to come together, whether you’re a rites of passage practitioner, a youth mentor wanting to build a stronger regional network, a parent who simply wants to support their child, or just someone interested in bringing folks across generations together to build more resilient and thriving communities. Passageways Day is for you.
