November 14 in LC
The Chinese Adopted Siblings Program for Youth (CASPY) is a bi-annual cultural event co-hosted by the Chinese American Students Association (CASA) and the Taiwanese American Society (TAS) that hopes to enrich the greater Chinese / Taiwanese American community here in the tri-state area. Once a semester, we invite children and teens adopted from China to engage with Chinese culture with their families, and to bond with the Chinese adoptee and Yale Asian American communities in a fun and relaxed setting.
But we need your help! For our event, we pair Chinese adoptees with a "big sib" for the day to be their mentor, role model, and companion for the day - that's YOU! We are so excited to announce that big sib registration is now officially open for CASPY Fall 2015 to be held on Saturday, November 14th, 2015.

- 10:30 am - 11:30 am: Check in and meet Little Sibs

You need to be free from 10:30 AM - 4:30 PM on Saturday, November 14th, 2015 to be a big sib. Sign up to be a big sib here!!
If you don't have that time to commit, then we also have the Volunteer option, so you can still be a part of the fun while not having to commit for the whole day. - 10:30 AM - 1 pm: Registration Volunteer - 11 am - 1 pm: Lunch Volunteer - 12:30 pm - 3 pm: Workshop Volunteer (kids / teens programs) - Variable times: Photographer Volunteer Sign up to be a volunteer here!!
We send you our warmest gratitude on behalf of these kids. Exposure to Chinese culture and the Asian American community can be so formative for Chinese adoptees - you can help strengthen this important part of their identity! Deadline for registration is November 10th, 2015 at 11:59 PM EST. Once you sign up, we'll be following up shortly with more information. We look forward to seeing you on November 14th.
