First AdopTween Hangout of 2015

This past Saturday, AdopTween kicked off its 2015-2016 program It was great to see so many new friends and to be reunited with just as many old ones. Tweens and their teen mentors took a spin outside their comfort zone and had a conversation about how to deal with uncomfortable situations, while also playing amoeba soccer, twinsies badminton, and improv games. We had a blast, and can’t wait for the rest of this year’s programs, which will include learning how to cook, making our own masks, and going to the zoo!
