I’m always on the lookout for resources to share with fellow parents. Here’s one I thought I’d share with you. Act quick though! The application deadline is September 15th. I’ve cut and pasted the information for you below, straight from the Colorado Post-Adoption Center’s Mentor Program newsletter:
Information about the adoption mentor program:
From the Colorado Post-adoption Resource Center’: We are excited to announce the Colorado Post-Adoption Resource Center’s Mentor Program! The mission of this pilot program is to promote healthy relationship building between experienced adoptive parent(s) and new adoptive parents AND experienced youth adoptees and newly adopted youth by listening, sharing ideas, and increasing trust through reciprocal relationships.
The application process is now open, and the application deadline is September 15th.
All accepted participants are strongly encouraged to attend a mentor/mentee training retreat that will take place near Fairplay on September 27th and 28th. If you are a caseworker, support group leader, or family advocate, we appreciate your assistance in helping youth and parents complete their application in the short time frame provided.
