There is a critical need for intervention programs for at-risk young girls in our society. Statistics indicate a high drop out rate from high school, and most of this is linked to a history of delinquency and/or other situations. The primary target of the Rites of Passage program is at-risk girls ages 12 through 16, who are at risk of dropping out of high school, and falling through the cracks. As a high school teacher, the founder of this organization recognized the need for intervention facilitate improvement of this enormous problem among high school students.
Many prospective participants of the Rites of Passage program will require assistance to fund a week of comprehensive training, nurturing, and transformation. The program is asking individuals and organizations to sponsor one or more girl to attend this life-saving summer program. Funders are encouraged to give whatever they are able to the program, even if they are not able to sponsor one or more participants.
