About our Coming of Age Program
“Coming-of-age” marks a young person’s transition from childhood to adulthood. Families are invited to enroll their older teens in our coming-of-age program, whose guiding principle is to provide a safe and creative environment, and ethical grounding, to empower every young adult to blossom within our community. The age at which this transition takes place varies in society, as does the nature of the transition. It can be a simple legal convention or part of a ritual as practiced in many societies and religions.
In our diverse community, we welcome young people who are seeking an opportunity to mark their life path with a process and celebration focused on
- World awareness
- Personal and social responsibility
- Community service
Recognizing that children mature at different rates, we meet with children and parents to determine when a child is ready, and the curriculum is geared to the needs of the individual and family. With a Humanist anchor, we will explore a world of ideas and values together.
