Virtual – Cleft Connect Chat for Teens

Sunday, June 4, 2023, 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm


A virtual opportunity for teens born with cleft conditions to connect and collaborate

Join Operation Smile Student Programs for Cleft Connect chat on June 4 from 7 to 8 p.m.

Cleft Connect is a virtual gathering for teens ages 13 to 18 who were born with cleft conditions. Adult facilitators (who were also born with a cleft) provide support.

Activities will include:

  • Games and exercises to help boost communication skills and confidence
  • Participants from the United States and other countries

Guest speakers often join the chat to share their wisdom and answer questions.

See the Cleft Connect flyer for more details and chat dates.
