At CCAI, we believe that adoption is a life-long journey. The privilege of raising children from different backgrounds is made better when we stay connected. We are pleased to offer family events, cultural and Adoptee camps during the summer, and Adoptee groups and meet-ups throughout the year.
Our Joyous Chinese Cultural School’s unique weekly cultural classes are a great opportunity for children and adults to learn and connect with Chinese culture.
Whether you’re seeking to connect with your birth culture, experience a new dance style, or simply brush up on your language skills, our courses are a great way to further your education and knowledge!
