Since 1983, PEPS has provided neighborhood-based parent peer-support programs for families. Group Leaders are integral to our mission, working alongside parents to facilitate conversation and foster connection. The majority of our amazing Group Leaders are volunteers.
Group Leaders create a welcoming space for parents to share, connect, and support one another. In 2022, more than 300 volunteers and 50 contract Leaders facilitated learning, connection, and support for more than 3,500 parents! PEPS Groups are the backbone of our organization and require a trained Group Leader to facilitate 12-week sessions.
