Ongoing – Weekly meetings and monthly programing
Cross-Cultural Adoptee Mentorship Program (C-CAMP) promotes cultural education and awareness of transracially adopted youth in Tompkins County. C-CAMP works to foster sustainable mentor-mentee relationships that encourage a mutual exploration of race, ethnicity, culture and language (where applicable) in order to deepen students’ connection with their ethnicity and culture.
In addition to individualized relationships, C-CAMP regularly hosts public outreach events that continually integrate their mission of cross-cultural education and growth into the broader Ithaca and Tompkins County community. The program strives to foster these connections not only to make a difference in the lives of cross-cultural families, but to increase knowledge of the impacts of transracial adoption as a whole.
