Once a week the initiates come together and participate in educational classes that focus on topics that impact their lives. Each session is about 90 minutes in length and will be co-facilitated by qualified adults. The goal of the sessions is to provide a non-judgmental and supportive environment where initiates can come together to develop and enhance life-skills, explore issues that impact their lives, learn about their culture and take positive charge of their lives.
