Having discovered through their global work that the healthiest communities had rites of passage for their youth, ICA members determined that they needed to provide such an experience for their own youth. The initial programs were in 5th City with the understanding of lifelong learning and rituals to demonstrate the change from one life phase to another. Several programs were created for sixth-ninth graders to empowering them to become adults. Trabal societies knew what they wanted when they sent about an initiation. A community piece was created in various societies, like the Bar Mitzvah, initiation of girls and boys in African society to take on adult responsibilities.
