Thornhill Rites of Passage Foundation

Rites of Passages have been a part of all societies, and has come to mean the journey a young person takes as they transition from adolescence into manhood.  The Thornhill Rites of Passage Foundation offers programs that provide a continuum for young men in grades 7-9 to gain core skills and experiences based on the Core4 - Character, Competence, Competitiveness and Citizenship, including mentoring and a paid internship in their field of interest.
