Each culture carries private, public and ceremonial rituals as crucial currency for communicating values and inviting participation. At a time of fracturing community, increased isolation and intolerance, this course focuses on how reinvigorated rituals can support societies to evolve new identities, foster heartfelt engagement and deepen social connections.

"Rites of Passage: Strengthening Our Communities" will envision healthy communities and examine the role of relationships and elders in guiding young people. We will look at the way celebrating rites of passage can ensure cultural continuity and help the young find purpose and offer service within it.

We will exchange the rites of our own cultures and develop empathy practices in the powerful act of witnessing and being witnessed. The course seeks to empower a generation of community leaders by equipping youth workers with creative tools for rigorous and practical leadership. You will study:

  • Ethnographic principles and the history of ritual
  • Healthy community frameworks
  • Non-violent communication
  • Rites for civic engagement and social justice
  • Active listening and the practice of empathy
  • Theatre for personal expression

The course will use non-formal education methods including presentations, artistic expression, group work, sharing and games. You will be stimulated by active personal participation, project design, development and delivery. You will be furnished with a toolkit and will be asked to create dissemination projects in your home communities.
