Sacred Fire Community Mentoring Program

Since 2003, approximately 100 young people have been initiated into adulthood through rituals of the Sacred Fire Community.

Our powerful Lifeways Initiation program prepares our youth to live a life of value and purpose. The Sacred Fire Community believes it's essential to provide ongoing support to these initiated youth to help them navigate the realities of adulthood in a world out of balance. We intend to provide them with direct one-on-one mentoring for a full four years so that they will stand up for a different vision of the future.

The Sacred Fire Community is launching its Mentoring Program in December, 2013. The program will initially provide mentoring to 14 initiates. Dr. Tom Balistrieri, a therapist and university counselor with a rich background in indigenous culture is training our mentors. You can find out more about Tom at www.passagetransformation.com.

We need your help! To launch this program, we need $15,000 by the end of this year. Consider sponsoring a mentor for a full year of expenses at the $1,000 level. Any gift you can make will be a gift to a better future.

We have already done so much together. We know that the future relies on the spiritual health of our youth.

Thank you on behalf of the Sacred Fire Community and the many young people who will benefit from your support.
