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 single-session workshops 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.

Workshops & Training
Each month Pact offers at least one educational program specifically designed for adoptive families. Learn more »

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 »
