Adopteen Coordinates “Adoptees Giving Back – 2013 Orphan Service Trip”

Yesterday, CCAI’s branch program, Adopteen, launched their most exciting and ambitious endeavor yet!  And what endeavor would this be?  We’ll let them tell you. 😀



I don’t even know how to express the magnitude of my excitement about that picture right above us. ADOPTEEN IS COORDINATING ITS FIRST EVER SERVICE TRIP TO CHINA!!! It’s happening! In June! 2013! Ahhhhhh!!!

We have been talking and planning and playing with this project for so long, it feels like a dream to finally be able to announce it and introduce it to the world! We are STOKED.

So what is this, “Adoptees Giving Back – Orphan Service Trip”?

Adoptees Giving Back is a never-done-before opportunity for a group of 30 Chinese adoptees to join Adopteen’s Co-Directors, Art and Amy, on a 12-day service trip to China to volunteer their love, time, and efforts to orphans living in four different orphanages! The trip is exclusively for adoptees and you must be 15 years old or older to travel. There is no upper age limit.

There is a lot more to know before applying to join the trip, so please visit to read over the Adoptees Giving Back – Orphan Service Trip Information page, look over the trip itinerary, and check the FAQ’s!

IT’S ALL VERY EXCITING! We cannot wait.

Those interested must apply in order to be considered.  Applications will be reviewed in the order they are received – a.k.a. if you’ve got your heart set on going, you’ll want to submit your application as soon as possible.  30 is a very small number.

Applications must be submitted by February 28, 2013, at the latest.
