Dr Edonna,
Excuse the late response but I just saw this entry. This is not a PulseWire member but you might want to contact Emily D. Gunter, the Founder of the Rites of Passage Youth Empowerment Foundation. You can contact her through her website at

The Rites of Passage Youth Empowerment Program is an intensive, focused and sustained preventive and/or intervention approach to empower youth with the knowledge, skills and abilities to transition successfully from adolescence into adulthood. Youth completing the 12 challenges of the program will be equipped with the tools necessary to effect positive change in their lives and communities. Through the Rites of Passage Program, youth learn through empowerment not fear. This program teaches, teamwork, leadership, values, responsibility and practical life skills.

All the best,
