Intonjane Training Institute...

Rights of Passage and Mentoring Program for Girls 


Founded by Rev. Dr. Wendell Anthony shortly after the inception of the male mentoring counterpart, Isuthu Training Institute, the Intonjane (In-tone-johnny) Training Institute, mentors young girls ages 6-17.  These young ladies are taught how to transition from girlhood to womanhood through fun, educational forums, field trips, discussions and speakers.  They receive one-on-one, and group, mentoring.  The focus is on personal responsibility and community awareness.  They cross over into womanhood at the completion of their senior year of high school through a Rites of Passage Ceremony.


Meetings are held the 1st and 2nd Saturday of the month during the school year from 2-4 p.m.  Yvette Anderson is the Program Director.


Circles: Kirabo (ages 6-9) Sangoma (ages 10-13) NyaKoma (ages 14-17)
