Rites of Passage: 8-Solutions for Black Churches

Solutions for Black Churches
  1. Create a Rites of Passage Program for community youth.
  2. Start an entrepreneurial program to teach youth business principles.
  3. Plan and implement summer programs for youth that focus on math, science and technology.
  4. Develop a community based Parent Leadership Academy.
  5. Organize church membership to adopt a community school.
  6. Start a book club that reads critical life sustaining books.
  7. Develop a voter education campaign that will address all aspects of grassroots politics.
  8. Mobilize men in the church to start a ‘Fatherhood Network” to address issues related to fatherhood and child rearing.
Community development must extend outside of the pulpit!
