Welcome 8 New Initiates to Rites of Passage Alumni !



Jack and Jill of America, Inc., Minneapolis Chapter, is excited to congratulate the 2021 Rites of Passage Initiates for completing their journey on May 15, 2021.  Eight outstanding young men marched, were pinned with the inaugural ROP Pin of Excellence, performed powerful oratory, robbed and crossed the precipice into manhood.  We are so proud of these future leaders and look forward with great anticipation to the next chapter in their lives.   At Rites of Passage, excellence is a team sport.   A big thank you to our ROP co-chairs, mother members, mentors, elders, families, friends and well wishers.
