So-Cal Youth Groups
2019-2020 Kaleidoscope Tween & Teen Clubs
For Adopted and Fostered Youth of Color (10-18 years old) and their Non-Adopted Siblings
Pact’s pioneering Tween/Teen Clubs model an innovative approach of support for foster and adoptive families and youth still in care. No other curriculum exists nationally that addresses the intersection of race and placement for fostered/adopted youth. This program which has been working successfully for over ten years in Northern California, is now being offered for Southern California under Pact’s Kaleidoscope program. Separate Tween (ages 10-12) and Teen (ages 13-18) gatherings, organized in 10 three-hour sessions over a year, focus on both social interactions among the youth and mentoring by highly trained adults and counselors of color, many of whom were adopted or fostered themselves. To address the needs of children of color when birth parents cannot parent and foster/adoptive placement is necessary, support is needed long after placement.
The clubs are designed as social groups rather than therapeutic interventions.
