Xinachtli Rites of Passage Facilitator Certification + Mental Health First Aid Training

Xinachtli (Nahuatl for germinating seed) is a gender-responsive, culturally-based rites of passage philosophy, process, and curriculum that promotes healing, resilience, and leadership capacity of Chicana, Latina and Indigenous girls and gender expansive youth. The philosophy and curriculum supports the reframing of a new narrative of transformation healing and advocacy rooted in a gender, racial justice, anti-oppression framework. The Xinachtli curriculum provides a dialectic process of: • Reflexión (reflection) • Concientización (critical consciousness) • Creación (creation) • Acción (action)

All trained participants will be certified in the Xinachtli Rites of Passage curriculum. This 3 day training will support facilitators in their life-skills work with girls and gender expansive youth.
