Are you the parent or caregiver of a 10-18 year old?

If so, we invite you and your teen (or teens) to attend a four session education series covering topics like communication, healthy relationships, birth control, LGBTQ families & much much more!

Hosted jointly by the North American Council On Adoptable Children and the Annex Teen Clinic, the sessions will be taught by trauma-informed and trained sexuality educators.

Parents and kids will spend some time together having facilitated conversations. They will also spend time separately in their own peer groups.

The Teen Annex staff will work with the kids and with the parents;  NACAC staff including Jerome and adult transracial adoptees will also be with the kids.
