An initiation story is a fiction in which the protagonist (the most important character in the work) undergoes an experience that is life-changing, and usually that character is a young person who gains a measure of maturity from the experience.

Good examples of initiation in short stories are James Joyce's "Araby," John Updike's "A & P," Sarah Orne Jewett's "A White Heron," and Alice Munro's "The Found Boat."
