Rites of Passage Institute specializes in youth activities and women's wellness.
“Connecting you to your best self,” is the motto for Rites of Passage Institute. Rites of Passage institute's classes are based upon respecting nature, honoring indigenous ancestors, and self-sufficiency (Kujichagulia). We mainly focus on women's health because when the women are good everyone is good. Teach a woman, teach a nation. Women of color suffer the highest incidence of gynecological issues and through slavery, colonialism, westernization have lost their connection to cultural/ancient practices that kept us healthy. So, Rites of Passage Institute works to reestablish those traditions, bonds, and confidence that women need to be happy and healthy. Our classes give women and youth the tools they need to have a positive identity and be happy and healthy.
