Korean Programs
HOLT CHILDREN'S SERVICES HOME-COMING PROGRAM Mapo-gu Office and Holt Children's Services, Inc. have joined forces to develop and present their Home-Coming Program that is designed exclusively for Korean Adoptees; the goal is to provide assistance for individuals who want to live and work in Korea. Our objective is to facilitate opportunities for adoptees to better understand their Motherland while building networks with other adoptees as-well-as native Koreans. Our hope is that the Home-Coming Program will help participants to understand their Korean identifies while providing a home base for adoptees during their stay in Korea.
