New group for adopted youth

Adolescence is a tough time for many youths. The complexity of adoption-related issues can magnify this difficulty. That is why Right Turn now offers groups specifically for youth during these difficult years.

Our 6-week group for youth age 10-13 will launch on October 1st. Space is limited so be sure to register early.

What do people say to YOUR KIDS about ADOPTION?
Do your kids know how to W.I.S.E. Up! their friends, peers and neighbors about ADOPTION?

W.I.S.E. Up!, developed by C.A.S.E, is designed to empower kids and families in their own world! It is a program that teaches tools for handling comments and questions about adoption. W.I.S.E. Up! gives children and teens (and parents, too!) the power to choose how to talk about adoption with others! Children need W.I.S.E. Up! when they begin to be asked questions about adoption and their adoption story.

This TOOL is important when the children begin to hear that others are noticing some differences about how their family was formed. For children in transracial or transcultural families, that may begin as early as age 3 (“Why don’t you look like your mom?”) and for others, it may not begin until ages 6, 7, or 8, when their friends may begin to be curious about their adoptive family (“Why were you adopted?”).

W.I.S.E. Up! is for adopted children entering 1st — 6th grades in Fall of 2017.

Please note that birth children and foster children are not able to attend. W.I.S.E. Up! is a curriculum of C.A.S.E. and Right Turn is bound by their requirements.

Parents do need to attend with their children.

Dinner will be served.
