Tween & Teen Club Meeting

Tweens: 2-5:00 pm

Teens 6-9:00 pm


Tweens & teens will be joining Amy Cipolla-Stickles, Pact’s LGBT/Multicultural Consultant (who also is an adult adoptee), to watch and discuss Straightlaced, How Gender Gets Us All Tied Up.  The film highlights how popular pressures around gender and sexuality confine tweens and teens.

 Amy has worked with Pact staff this fall to help us address and understand how we can be better allies to the LGBTQ community and she will work with the kids to highlight attitudes toward male and female stereotypes, gay and lesbian people and the threads that link gender, culture, class & race.  Some of the topics that will likely be covered include:


  • Appearance
  • Body Image
  • Dating & Relationships
  • Homophobia
  • Masculinity & Femininity
  • Peer Pressure
  • Gender Roles & Stereotypes
  • Being an Ally



Amy McDonald Cipolla-Stickles has long been involved in struggles for equity and justice for transracial adoptees, children and families impacted by the foster care system, teenage parents, and people who are financially unstable. Amy has more than 10 years’ experience in multicultural leadership and facilitation. She has led multicultural trainings in a variety of settings including schools, social service agencies, health care organizations, and foundations. She also spent five years as the diversity initiatives program manager for the Massachusetts Department of Children and Families, where she co-designed and implemented the Diversity 101 for Social Workers and Diversity 102 for Managers training curricula.
