Rights of Passage and Mentoring Program for Girls
Founded by Rev. Dr. Wendell Anthony shortly after the inception of the male mentoring counterpart, Isuthu Training Institute, the Intonjane (In-tone-johnny) Training Institute, mentors young girls ages 6-17. These young ladies are taught how to transition from girlhood to womanhood through fun, educational forums, field trips, discussions and speakers. They receive one-on-one, and group, mentoring. The focus is on personal responsibility and community awareness. They cross over into womanhood at the completion of their senior year of high school through a Rites of Passage Ceremony.
Meetings are held the 1st and 2nd Saturday of the month during the school year from 2-4 p.m. Yvette Anderson is the Program Director.
