Rite of Passage – a new program to facilitate and acknowledge the significant milestones on your students’ journeys through their transition to high school, adolescence and into the adult world.
In collaboration with Dr Arne Rubinstein, renowned expert on adolescent development and founder of the Rites of Passage Institute, we have co-designed an Outward Bound Rite of Passage program.

The Rite of Passage framework is designed around 4 elements:

With a shared story, parents/ carers and teachers are engaged to understand the new expectations of students and their vital role in honouring and celebrating their young person’s transformation on their return.
