Arrange a Training
Adoption STAR can help address your educational needs by arranging training opportunities for you and your co-workers. We provide trainings throughout the states of New York, Florida, and Ohio – and we will come to you!
Adoption STAR conducts educational training sessions on all aspects of adoption, parenting and other related issues. These sessions are often prepared for physicians, nurses, social workers, educators, community leaders, and support groups. We also focus on training opportunities that are specific to all members of the adoption triad – adoptive families, birth families and adoptees.
Adoption STAR also regularly gives presentations to students of all ages. Whether it’s time in a pre-school classroom or time in a college/university lecture hall, we’re committed to education and awareness. Adoption STAR loves to assist educators in determining how adoption education can be included in their school’s curriculum.
The agency has also developed a resource library on adoption and related topics. You are welcome to visit our library to browse through the collection and even borrow materials. In addition, our staff would be happy to review available literature with you and identify specific resources that may be beneficial for you (or your patients, clients, students, etc.).
If you wish to attend any of our workshops or educational programs, or wish to work with us to develop and/or deliver a training or in-service specifically for you or your organization, please call us toll free 1.866.691.3300 or email us.
Adoption STAR is pleased to share some of the many letters and emails we receive thanking us for the training and assistance that we provided.
-Johanna Oreskovic, Legal Writing Faculty, University at Buffalo Law School
The power point presentation was very thorough and comprehensive. We could not have had a better and more valuable training for our staff.
We truly appreciate your support and are very thankful that your organization was able to come to Covenant House New York to present the training. We are now better able to serve our clients in the matter or issues related to adoption.
Thank you again for such a heart felt and enlightening training experience!
