We are losing our children! Malcolm X once said that, “Armed with a knowledge of our past, we can with confidence, charter a course for our future.” We need Rites of Passage programs to teach our youth to embrace our past in order to understand our legacy and purpose in the world.   


In Traditional African culture, there are 4 major stages in everyone's life: Birth, Rites-of-Passage, Marriage and Death.  The missing element in African-American culture is the formal and structured ritual celebrating each child's passage into manhood and womanhood.
