Virtual Meet & Greet: Youth Registration

Event date: 8/13/2020 6:00 PM - 7:30 PM Export event

Michigan Adoption Resource Exchange (MARE) would like to invite you to register for our first Virtual Meet & Greet!  We are hoping to still be able to connect youth and families during this time by changing our format for these events from in-person to virtually!  

  • Thursday, August 13, 2020
  • 6 PM - 7:30 PM (families plan to sign on at 5:45 PM for a brief orientation)
  • Virtually via zoom

Waiting youth:  Priority will be given to youth without any pending inquiries through MARE, youth who have never been to a meet and greet and youth who were not in attendance at a recent MARE Meet and Greet. If a child participated in a recent meet and greet, all inquiries from the last event should be resolved before the child can attend the next event. Once a child has been registered, a confirmation email will be sent to their adoption worker with the zoom information for the event. All attending youth MUST be legally free for adoption, photo listed with MARE and listed as "Open" on the MARE website.

Please note when registering waiting youth: Adoption workers, if you register a youth for a meet and greet and you anticipate they will have a status change prior to the event date, please notify me so that we can discuss if it would be appropriate for that youth to still attend the event.

Due to the shortened time frame of these virtual events if a youth signs off more then 15 minutes after the event starts they will unfortunately be unable to participate in the event.  

To register, click the appropriate link below.  Registration can also be found on the MARE homepage or by contacting MARE directly.

If you have any questions, please contact MARE Recruitment Specialist Jessica Thompson at (734) 528-2070 or
We look forward to seeing you there!
The max capacity for these virtual events will be 6 families and 10 youth to start.  We hope with the new virtual event format that we can host these events once a month to start in order to give youth and families more opportunities to participate!
