KAAN – 2012 KAAN Conference Mentor Corps
This summer the KAAN conference is in Albany, and we are hoping to support more families – both adoptive families, and the families of adult adoptees in attending the conference. To that end – we wanted to spread the word about a new program for the conference this summer. To support our youth programming we have organized the KAAN mentor corps. If you know any older teen or adult adoptees who are interested in attending the conference – and interested in supporting young adoptees and adoptee’s kids as part of the conference – Please feel free to contact Martha M. Crawford LCSW (marthacrawford @ yahoo.com) for more information about KAAN childcare, youth, or mentor programs!
