Learning together

The Park Adoption Community Center’s educational resources offer individuals and families the opportunity to fortify personal, familial, and communal connections through in-person and online courses, workshops, and events.

Whether you are looking for opportunities to refresh your skills, deepen your knowledge, or gather new strategies, we are ready to meet you where you are and grow together.

Post-Adoption Learning

Whether you are newly home or your children now have children of their own, every new step in the adoption journey allows for opportunities to learn and grow as a family. The Park is eager to offer engaging and versatile post-adoption support workshops and classes for adoptees and adoptive families of all stages, to help encourage and guide you through the highs and lows.

Cultural Connection

We believe that access to positive birth cultural connections is a vital support resource for adoptees and their families. The Park offers approachable and engaging Chinese cultural learning programming under the Joyous Chinese Cultural School (JCCS), and is also working hard to provide opportunities to connect with South American, Eastern European, and Haitian cultures!

With an approach that is specifically shaped for transnational adoptees and non-native speakers, our cultural learning courses emphasize exploration and connection. Whether you are simply looking for a fun cultural experience or needing to maintain fluency, JCCS classes and any of our workshops are a great place to start.

Professional Education

We are actively working to build educational resources and dialogue opportunities for professionals to learn and grow, expand and deepen their skill base in order to better support the adoption community. Our intention is not only to support social workers, therapists, school counselors, and mentors, but to open the door to industry professionals who possess an equal ability to create better support for adoptees and adoptive families.
