Pact provides lifelong learning, to help you meet your children's needs at every age and developmental stage.

Parenting is a humbling experience - there is always more to learn. Pact's educational programs have a nationwide reputation for excellence, particularly on the subject of adoption and race. We offer a broad range of learning opportunities, led by Pact staff as well as other experts in the field. Programs range from individual consultations and monthly webinars to our weeklong Pact Family Camp. Whatever the format, you will find sensitive, experienced facilitators and a community of other adoptive parents who share your questions and concerns.

Each month Pact offers two webinars specifically designed for the adoption constellation: adoptees, birth parents, adoptive parents, adoption professionals and allies. Learn more »

Pact Family Camp
Our annual Pact Family Camp brings together adopted children of color and their families for a week of learning, growing, sharing - and good, old-fashioned summer camp fun! Many families have told us that their time at Camp had a profound effect, offering them a community they can't find anyplace else. Learn more »

Learning by Reading
At Pact, we are firm believers in the educational impact of reading, for both adults and children. Our placement process includes required reading for all pre-adoptive parents. To support your independent learning, we offer a curated selection of books on adoption, parenting, and race, each one reviewed by Pact; and Pact's Point of View, our quarterly publication for Pact members, featuring original writing by adopted adults and youth, first/birth parents, adoptive parents, and adoption professionals.
