Students and youth are the world’s future. Connections between American and Korean students foster global citizenship, mutual respect, cultural understanding, and peace.

"Chingu" means friend in Korean. AdopteeBridge's "Dear Chingu" program coordinates letter exchanges between American and Korean students ages 13-18.

AdopteeBridge welcomes classes of U.S. high schools (8th-11th grade) who are interested in exchanging letters with Korean high school students. If your school is interested in this program, please contact Adoptee Bridge at

Correspondence will be facilitated between high school teachers and AdopteeBridge. Monthly correspondence is the goal.

If adoptee is 13-17 years old, permission must be given by a parent/legal guardian in order to participate.

Session 1: March-July (deadline to register is February 1, 2018)
