What is it?

We all know there are TONS of great programs out there for young adoptees. And there are now more and more programs for teen and young adult adoptees. But, there is very little support for the pre-teens. Or, as we like to call them, the AdopTweens!

Adoptween has grown out of a desire by our older adoptee participants to mentor younger adoptees and, like all of our programs, is based around a very simple concept.

Friendship in Mentorship

AdopTween invites all pre-teen adoptees (ages 9-12) from all backgrounds to engage in some purposeful fun, led through the mentorship of teen and young adult adoptees (ages 16+). AdopTween provides a positive, constructive space for preteen adoptees to meet new friends and share in eachothers stories!

AdopTween is a bi-monthly (every other month) program that invites pre-teen adoptees to engage in fun activities that address various topics that we feel are important to talk about in pre-teen years. Such topics as making good friends, facing your fears, building self-esteem, encouraging self-expression, celebrating your multicultural family, etc. Adoptween is all about friendship and figuring things out with your peers and all of our activities help highlight positive self-identity and character!

AdopTween is open to ALL adoptees, boys and girls, from any country, ages 9-12!

Single AdopTween Event: $35/tween
