This is my first follow-up to “Thinking about the development of youth.” As I was writing this I realized that I had neglected three major rites of passages, one for each age group.

Junior High – moving to high school, of course
Underclassmen – getting their driver’s license
Upperclassmen – graduation from high school

How could I forget any of these!

So my mind is spinning now and I’m wondering if anyone has rites of passage you use within your youth ministry? If so, how do they work?

Thanks for sharing!
