Cultural Connections

Supporting cultural pride and identity

Culture influences how we see the world, how we see the community that we live in, and how we learn, remember, and connect. Often caught between cultures, The Park is devoted to helping adoptees and their families grow confidently and proudly in their birth culture connections through programming that welcomes questions and encourages exploration. Whether it’s a cultural learning course or a 2-week birth country tour, any cultural connection experience is one worth having.
