  • Boy 2 Man

    State:
    Queensland
    Topic:
    Community

     A school based ‘Rite of Passage’ course for year 9 boys. There are 7 lessons that comprise the ‘education’ phase, followed by a separation ceremony, 3 day camp, return ceremony and celebration. The lessons are taught by myself and supported by male teachers. We take on the role as ‘elders’ due to the goal of passing on wisdom and experience to the younger boys in our community. This year we also plan to ask another elder to attend the return ceremony and ‘officially’ welcome the boys to the local community of men.
