Events presented by FGC

 


Affiliated Yearly Meeting Events

Baltimore Yearly Meeting:

New England Yearly Meeting:

New York Yearly Meeting: 

Quaker Parent Mutual Support Groups: New York Yearly Meeting will soon launch mutual support groups for Quaker parents. These groups, which will meet either weekly or bi-weekly through April 2021, will provide a space for conversation between Friends who are currently parenting children. Facilitators will be present to set things up and provide listening ears, but the time will be loosely structured so that it can be what you need it to be.

Although this effort is supported by New York Yearly Meeting, Quaker parents from other places are warmly welcomed. Learn more and register to participate here.

If you have questions, please contact Emily Provance (support group coordinator)
