Adopteen Organizing Committee

Being undeniably awesome, all the time...

Adopteen is now accepting Organizing Committee and Conference Assistant applications. We will hire one Conference Assistant per Summer Camp-Conference, and an Organizing Committee for Midpoint and both Summer Camp-Conferences.

The Adopteen Organizing Committee is the driving force behind everything we do at our Camp-Conferences. Adopteen is run by teen and young adult adoptees, for teen and young adult adoptees. The Organizing Committee serves as Camp Counselors as well as helps shape the conference schedule and overall flow of events.

The Camp-Conference Assistant, while part of the Organizing Committee, is a more involved, paid position. Camp-Conference Assistants will work very closely with our Conference Coordinator to arrange all the details of their Camp beforehand, and serve as the head of the Committee before, during, and after the event. For more details on both positions, please see Job Descriptions below.

All adoptees over the age of 15 are welcome to apply to be on the Organizing Committee - you do not need to have attended Adopteen before (though previous leadership and conference experience are preferred).

What Is It?

An opportunity to play an even bigger role in the Adopteen community! We aren't here just for laughs. We want to build strong, positive leaders and show the world what incredible things we are capable of.

The Organizing Committee and Conference Assistant primarily help develop, organize, and lead the Adopteen Camp-Conference and Midpoint Retreat. It's a busy job and meaningful commitment. You will work closely with a team of other adoptees toward making the next Camp-Conferences and Midpoint Retreats the best one yet!

Organizing Committee and Conference Assistants attend the Adopteen event that they work for free, with plane tickets and certifications if necessary covered by Adopteen. Please note that all Adopteen staff are required to be at the event that they work three days before the scheduled start date for event prep and activities.

Think you've got what it takes? Of course you do. See below for Job Descriptions as well as instructions on how to apply to each position.
