Youth Summer

The summer program offers participants the opportunity to explore the idea of a Rites of Passage-what this concept means at different times in our lives following the belief that we are always in transition. The program culminates in a performance, which every participant helps to create and give expression to his/her rite of passage at this moment in their development.

Rites of Passage Summer

Bailey’s summer program is a free arts-based rites/rights of passage program for young people ages 9 to 19 years of age. The program offers participants the opportunity to explore the idea of a Rites/Rights of Passage-what this concept means at different times in our lives following the belief that we are always in transition; and to become familiar with the traditions of manhood/womanhood that have informed the practices of different cultures as they create an understanding of their own passage for themselves.
