Adopt-A-Teen is a Christmas gift program of the Christmas Bureau of Edmonton that provides a $50 gift card for Edmonton teens aged 13 to 17 years. Teens must be registered with the Christmas Bureau of Edmonton, can be independent living or living with a family.
Adopt-A-Teen was started in 1999 upon the realization that there was no Christmas gift program in Edmonton for under-privileged youth once they turned 13 years of age.
In the first year, several hundred teens received gifts. Since then the program has grown.
Today, teens aged 13 to 17 years, who are registered with the Christmas Bureau of Edmonton, are eligible to receive a gift card.

We would like to thank you for all the gifts we had last Christmas. Me and my children were so happy. My teenagers were so helpful to me that they didn’t spend all the Adopt-A-Teen gift cards on their own stuff. They spent half the gift cards on the things they want and needed most. I am so delighted that we were able to be a recipient in your gift-giving program. We highly appreciate your generosity."
