We are proud that Pact's staff, volunteers, and Board of Directors reflect the world's racial diversity and include members of all elements of the adoption triad (adopted people, adoptive parents, and birth parents) and their families. We believe that adult adoptees and people of color are the best experts on their own experience.

We are always looking for dedicated, energetic, compassionate people of color, adopted and not, to work with our kids as mentors, counselors, and chaperones at Pact Family Camp, Teen & Tween Clubs, and other Pact events. There are a variety of volunteer and job opportunities for both adults and older teenagers. See below for current listings.

Pact is a "lean" organization with a relatively small year-round staff. When we have openings on our permanent staff, the positions will be posted below.
