Embracing Elderhood

Calling Elders to Mentor Youth in Rites of Passage

Program Details  |  Program Staff  |  Other Programs



The path to becoming a conscious elder in these turbulent times requires an open heart and an open mind…

...along with a desire to share one’s life learning with the next generation. How can Elders be in right relation to the youth they are committed to serving? Join a circle of elders-in-training as we consider how to mentor youth who are undergoing their own rites of passage, and who need the gentle witness and guiding hand of a conscious elder in order to uncover the meaning of their journey.

Have you been feeling a longing to be in service to youth?

Are you drawn to explore the unique gifts of Elderhood — and new roles you could play in your community?

An Invitation….

Rite of Passage Journeys has been guiding youth rites of passage for 50 years. We are in need of more Conscious Elders to help our youth navigate the passage to adolescence and adulthood. We invite you to join us in a conversation about the gifts of Eldering.

  • You’ll take away ideas which will you can take back to serve your own community needs.

  • You may also be inspired to join us at one of our summer rite of passage journeys to support these courageous youth!

We look forward to connecting as together we grow as Elders in these times.
