At Teen Journey we create new rites of passage that are relevant to our modern world, it involves 3 Stages:
Moving away from the known to the unknown.
In order to discover their true power and who they are, it is necessary for the teen to face and overcome challenges. Through their struggles they discover a new sense of self worth and inner power. They then are able to step into their new status as a young man or woman in the larger community.
Giving is receiving. The young people are acknowledged by their mentors and fellow participants for the progress they have made in discovering who they are at TJ.
They then return to the larger community where family and friends have prepared a receiving ceremony for them. Each teen is celebrated by their peers and mentors to this larger community and now feel inspired to live their gifts.
