Rites of Passage Program at Metropolitan AME Church
2012 ROPP Graduation Weekend
ROPP Graduation Weekend was full and rewarding. On Saturday, candidates completed their final challenges of the year: Preparing a meal, learning some sewing and ironing basics and participating in a financial literacy workshop led by the neighborhood Wells Fargo branch manager. Everyone agreed that the brunch was delicious! Omelettes, french toast, potatoes o'brien, fresh fruit, sausage, bacon and Canadian ham, hot coffee, orange juice and fresh squeezed lemonade!
The next day, the candidates' graduation was marked by a ceremony during the 10AM worship hour. Graduates received gift bags with a load of goodies and their year in ROPP was complete.
ROPP graduates are eligible to be invited to serve as Jr. Mentors for future ROPP candidates. More
information will be provided as this new aspect of the ROPP program is developed!
