The National Rites of Passage Institute (NROPI) today announced that its 2013 Youth and Community Building Conference will be held Friday, July 19, 2013 through Sunday, July 21, 2013 at the Reginald F. Lewis Museum of Maryland African American History & Culture in Baltimore, Maryland.

The gathering, which is themed “Exploring Our Passage to Purpose”, will bring together 200-300 youth participants, adult youth advocates, and the foremost experts and scholars on rites of passage in North America. This gathering will showcase the learning of over 30 years of employing rites of passage in different settings, as well as, celebrate the accomplishments, benefits, and results of Rites of Passage (ROP) as a strategy for youth and community development in the United States and Canada. The unique weekend experience will allow the intergenerational participation of youth, practitioners, parents and scholars to engage with one another on a variety of issues facing youth and communities and how they have employed the strategy of rites of passage and culturally specific programming to make a difference. By sharing stories, experiences, and best-practices they will learn new ways to support youth and be inspired to return home with a new sense of purpose to implement the Rites of Passage process as they work to make their community and programs better.
