What is an Older Youth Matching Event?
An Older Youth Matching Event is a fun, interactive day where prospective adoptive families and youth (12 and up) in need of a permanent home can connect with one another. Only families with an approved home study/family profile are eligible to attend. Each Meet the Kids event will have different activities but all will have opportunities for families and youth to engage with one another.
