Youth Peer Support
Yarrow Collective currently runs two programs for youth peer support — ECHO and Seed Circles. Read about them below!
Seed Circles is an 8-week youth community circle for teens ages 14-18.
During our 8 weeks, we will explore connection to self & community with curiosity and compassion. Seed Circles is based around the teachings of the four seasons summer, fall, winter and spring.

Xinachtli Rites of Passage
Xinachtli is an 8-week culturally-based rites of passage philosophy, process, and curriculum that promotes healing, resilience, and leadership capacity. Xinachtli was developed out of the spiritual distress experienced by communities of color, reframing a new narrative of transformation healing and advocacy rooted in a gender, racial justice, anti-oppression framework.
For 14-18 year old Chicana, Latina, and Indigenous girls + nonbinary youth. Read more about the program on our Xinachtli page.
The next Xinachtli cohort will start Monday October, 30th from 5-7pm!
