On Saturday, March 28th, 2015, Columbia  University's Taiwanese Students Association (TASA) will host their annual CASPY program for  children of Asian descent,  adopted into American families, targeting 6-13 year old kids .  CASPY functions as a cultural immersion program for the children participants and a social support-networking program. The day will consists of cultural workshops and activities that include Arts & Craft, group discussions, and various Columbia performance groups. There will also be a parent workshop which will include a panel of college students sharing their experiences,  giving a presentation, and  answering questions .
 
We hope to organize an exciting day that you and your child will remember and draw insight and support from. If you have any questions, please contact Justin Kung at  cu.tasa.caspy@gmail.com .

Each year, the Taiwanese American Student Association holds an event called the Chinese Adopted Siblings Program for Youth (CASPY). CASPY functions as a cultural immersion program for the children participants and a social support-networking program. The day will consists of cultural workshops that range from Chinese yo-yo to calligraphy, and much more. In many ways, CASPY functions as a program that looks beyond the face value for the families, creating a safe haven for cultural exploration and dialogue.
