Xinachtli (Nahuatl for germinating seed) is a gender-responsive, culturally-based rites of passage philosophy, process, and intergenerational curriculum that promotes healing, resilience,

and leadership capacity of Chicana, Latina and Indigenous youth.

KLBRI x Xinachtli aims to build capacity for effective implementation of Xinachtli by offering the Xinachtli curriculum to trained facilitators to guide them on their own healing journey. Through this, we will uplift the facilitator's capacity to promote healing and restoration for themselves, interpersonally,

in their organizations, and in their communities. 


In partnership with Xinachtli curriculum author, Sara Haskie- Mendoza, KLBRI has adapted the Xinachtli curriculum to offer an opportunity for facilitators and youth workers to heal and transform as they embark on their own journey as guerrerxs working with our youth and their communities.  KLBRI's Xinachtli Rites of Passage program is a 12 week healing-centered leadership development series offering.


Our Fall 2023 cohort will begin November 7th 2023.

Sessions will run on Tuesdays 2:00pm- 4:30pm PST via zoom.

We will meet weekly for 12 weeks.

We have created an Organizational Letter and Fact Sheet to support facilitators and youth workers in getting their registration sponsored by their organization.
