There is a strong sense of community among young adults at Rites of Spring.
Following their Rite of Passage at about age 15, young members of the community are invited to participate in our "Next Generation" programs which are designed for individuals between 15-25. Newcomers who are in this age group are encouraged to participate.
Lunch sessions with community elders, social get-togethers and workshops of special interest to this age group are scheduled throughout the gathering, and members of the Next Generation program may also be given particular roles in community rituals or other events.
Some past workshop topics of note have included:
- Building and maintaining a personal Pagan spiritual practice
- Developing a Pagan Students' Group at your school or university
- Interfaith relations and Pagan public awareness among young people
