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

Take Big Brothers/Big Sisters Club, mix in a bit of Scouts of America, and sprinkle on Adopteen. Voila! You've just made AdopTween.

The AdopTween program gives older adoptees (ages 16+) the opportunity to befriend and mentor some incredible younger adoptees (ages 9-12). But, more importantly, it provides a positive, constructive space for preteen adoptees to meet new friends and share in eachothers stories!

Mentors and their ‘tweens come hang out once a month to do some awesome activities and earn badges for every activity completed. 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! We have some new mentors joining us this year who are very eager to start growing the AdopTween community!

AdopTween Hangout Pricing:

Single AdopTween Event: $35/tween
