With such an amazing response from our first round of Pen Pals, we are super excited to announce that we are now accepting a second round of Pen Pals! Our mission is to connect adoptees through good ol' handwritten letters to strengthen our community, especially during a time that we need community the most!
You will receive monthly e-mails from us with writing prompts to inspire you along the way and will be expected to write at least one letter a month to your pen pal throughout the duration of the program. We understand that this is a hard time for everyone right now, so if you would like to apply but are unsure of your accessibility to sending handwritten letters, we are able to connect you via e-mail, but ask that you try for at least the first month to send a handwritten letter to your Pen Pal. If you participated in our first round of Pen Pals, you are more than welcome to submit an application for this round as well!
Please complete our application form below by next Wednesday, April 29th to apply! We will do our best to match based on preferences but cannot guarantee anything.
Application Deadline: Wednesday, April 29th
Program Duration: May 2020- September 2020
Open to All Ages!
*You will receive your Pen Pal Match by May 1st*
We are looking forward to connecting with you all soon! Feel free to reach out if you have any questions or send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please be on the look-out for an e-mail from us after submitting your application!
** Expectation is to send and receive a letter between you and your pen pal each month. Of course, this can continue past the program's duration if you and your pen pal would like to continue to stay in touch! **
If you have any questions, please email Alana and Emma by e-mail at AdopteeBoard@fccny.org.
