This October 12th, people from around the world are invited to bring conversations into their communities on how together they can, or do, honor, support, and celebrate their young people’s passage into adulthood.

Our invitation to you is to join this movement by coming together with your family and community October 12 to honor the age old wisdom of rites of passage with the prayer that healthy communities will strengthen and grow worldwide. Or incorporate this intention into your activities that day or and event you may be already hosting. This dream starts at your doorstep, in your garden, community center, school, church, synagogue, mosque, YMCA, or business.
