(ages 9-12)

Please note: All AdopTween events are currently being held virtually until further notice ---> Virtual Engagements <---

What is it?

AdopTween is a chance for young adoptees to start approaching life's crazy adventures and fortify their self-confidence and self-value with the support of peers and with the guidance of older adoptee mentors.

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 14+). AdopTween provides a positive, constructive space for preteen adoptees to meet new friends and share in eachothers stories!

AdopTween 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 strive to support positive self-identity!

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