Rites of Passage Program (ROP)

ROP engages incarcerated youth through an evidence-based social-emotional curriculum that improves their overall attitudes, deepen their emotional intelligence, and teaches them how to take responsibility for their everyday actions.

Ongoing Training & Workshops

The PCP staff provide training and workshops that include (but not limited to) these topics:

  • The Father Wound
  • Toxic Masculinity
  • Relationship Building
  • Communication Skills
  • Emotional Intelligence
  • Self-Awareness
  • Trauma


“Rites of Passage has enabled me to be of a more conscious mind. I now think a lot more before I react to things. Not only that, I now can “access” my emotions in a whole new way. . . . the Rites of Passage is an essential program for not only learning new ways of becoming a man, but also for the enrichment of one’s mind.”
