FAIRBANKS- When growing up, “rites of passage” usually means, getting a driver’s license, registering to vote, or turning 21, but one group wants to create a new rite.... youth empowerment training. Organizers say, the program will offer healthy perspectives on men and women in society, and teach teens a deeper meaning of success. The Rites of Passage Training is open to all high schoolers in the community. The groups will attend social events, complete service projects and participate on a “step team.” Stepping is a popular dance for self- expression, group building, and peer education. You can register in person at JP Jones or online, until March 13.
