Adopteen Leadership Team

Being undeniably awesome, all the time...

The Adopteen Leadership Team is the driving force behind everything we do. Adopteen is run by teen and young adult adoptees, for teen and young adult adoptees. The main responsibility of our Adopteen Leaders is to serve as Camp Counselors during our Adopteen events throughout the year, but also to organize and plan each event.

They're you!  Anyone who has attended at least one of our Adopteen Camp-Conferences is invited to apply to be on the Adopteen Leadership Team!

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 Leadership Team primarily helps develop, organize, and lead the Adopteen Camp-Conference and Midpoint Retreat. However, they also provide "behind the scenes" help with the Adoptees Giving Back Orphanage Service Trips and AdopTween Program, as well. It's a busy job and a year-round commitment.
