Working with Urgent, Inc./Rites of Passage for the past several years on an almost monthly basis has been a wonderful experience. The program is well-organized, with clearly defined goals. The girls are motivated to not only attend educational and career-related workshops on Saturday mornings, but to actively participate.

Urgent Inc. applies a holistic approach to providing intellectual stimulation and creative inspiration to inner-city girls who may not otherwise receive such exposure. The organization provides structured, fun, quality programming and positive role models for its participants. It has been interesting to observe how some of the girls who entered into the program with low self esteem and little self-efficacy have blossomed into beautiful and confident leaders amongst their peers. There are lots of opportunities for healthy and appropriate self-expression within realistic boundaries. Keep up the great and necessary work, urgent Inc.
