Adoption Workshop for Teens & Tweens with Angela Tucker
I-FACE is excited to offer a Teen Workshop with The Adopted Life blogger, Angela Tucker, a nationally-recognized thought leader on transracial adoption and advocate for adoptee rights. Angela will facilitate this workshop for teens between the ages of 11 and 15 which will encompass adoption-related conversations. She will use segments from The Adopted Life episode series to kickstart small group discussions with the primary goal of creating a safe space to grapple with their identity through structured prompts. Specifically, she will:
Encourage youth to decide which aspects of their story they’d like to share with strangers and which aspects they’d like to keep private.
Learn about adoptee-related phenomenons, such as code-switching, micro-aggressions, identity formation, searching for biological families, reconnecting with foster families and open relationships
Normalize the unique experience of being an adoptee
I-FACE is subsidizing the majority of the cost so the charge for participants is only $20. We will also have a post-workshop parent meeting to allow parents to discuss how the workshop went and answer questions surrounding this issue (Additional cost of $10 per parent).
