Youth Adoptee Support Groups

You Are Not Alone

Adopted youth, teens and young adults have unique struggles

Our youth adoptee support groups, YANA and YANA Plus, provide a safe place for developing friendships, leadership, learning together and meeting like experienced humans and focusing on connection!  It’s perfect for adopted youth nationwide ages 8-12  & 13-15.

A New Beginning’s youth groups are a safe place to connect, have fun and most of all, realize YOU ARE NOT ALONE! Living in a world filled with unknowns, diversity, and big decisions, it is important to build a community of people who uplift.

We can’t wait to meet and connect with your kids!

Our Youth Groups are led by Certified Support Specialists. These groups are open to youth adoptees nationwide.
