Adopteen Chapters

Getting together for huge events throughout the year is pretty amazing, but sometimes we want to have smaller, more intimate and more affordable chances to meet eachother and have some fun.  We've received tons of requests for more regular get-together options for older adoptees and we listened! 

Adopteen Chapters host hangouts - quick 3-4 hour opportunities to hang out and have a good time with some new friends.  Shoot a quick email to info@adopteen.org to be put on our mailing list and hear about opportunities coming up in your area!

Wanna coordinate a Chapter in your area?

First, we do have a set of requirements for anyone interested in being a coordinator:

- You're an adoptee

- You're at least 18 years old

- You have at least ten hours a month to dedicate to Adopteen for at least a year

Does that all sound like you? Awesome! Take a deeper dive in what it takes to be a coordinator with our Coordinator Flyer - if it sounds good to you, shoot us an email at info@adopteen.org!
