SOLIDMINDS believes that there is a transition which takes place and should be recognized when developing from adolescent to young adult. The organization teaches the difference in boyhood and manhood or girlhood and womanhood as it relates to lifestyle, thinking, behavior, responsibility and relevance to society. Man/Womanhood are goals to be achieved through a Rites of Passage process. SOLIDMINDS holds to the ideal that this process is not automatic and is therefore something which one is purposely developed into and tested to ensure the transition is proven. Adolescence achieving this level of participation are rewarded for their development and achievement and given greater responsibility.
