Start Transforming Lives Today
“The Leadership Training has helped me to set a new standard in delivering powerful well-being programs within our school. The content, location and most importantly the facilitators have inspired me with the confidence to bring these new skills back to share with other staff and students”


Our aim is for participants to:

  • ● Learn the elements of a Rite of Passage
  • ● Experience the elements of a Rite of Passage
  • ● Learn about liminal space in transformational work
  • ● Become more aware of where they could use a Rite of Passage beneficially in their work environment and have some time to begin designing them
  • ● Connect and network with other participants personally and professionally
  • ● Feel supported in their work and missions


The Rite of Passage Framework

The training is held over three days and is designed for anyone who wants to learn about Rites of Passage and begin their journey to develop and facilitate truly transformational programs for people. Over 5000 people globally have attended this training and set up programs in more than 20 countries. We believe that a Rite of Passage is a necessary part of a person’s development and our aim is to create masterful transformational facilitators that will help guide people and groups towards their best. 

The training explains the model and methodology of the Rites of Passage Framework and the theory behind transformation, it supports you in adopting the mindset and confidence required to inspire and guide others as they transition from one stage of life to the next. 

Our Leadership Training is commonly attended by teachers, outdoor educators, mentors, coaches, social workers, psychologists and parents and is run by Dr Arne Rubinstein, the Founder and CEO of The Rites of Passage Institute, and an expert on Rites of Passage and adolescent development. With almost 30 years experience, over 350,000 people have experienced our programs in 25 countries around the world.
