PEPS for Grandparents

Where Grandparents gather, connect and grow

PEPS recognizes the vital role of grandparents in their children’s and grandchildren’s lives and offers opportunities for grandparents to come together for support, shared information, and learning.


Grandparent Happy Hours

Celebrate being a grandparent and connect with other involved and curious grandparents like you at our Happy Hours for Grandparents. The Happy Hour typically includes light hors d'oeuvres and wine; an opportunity to mingle with other grandparents and a discussion, guided by an expert facilitator, on a topic relevant to grandparents.

  • Brown Bag Lunch: Wednesday, December 6, 12-1:30 pm
    Location: Pacific Science Center, Seattle
    Topic: 'The Power of Social Connection: Why we need each other’, with Jessica Lawmaster, PEPS Executive Director. We are living at a time of great research and insights into the social brain. What we continue to learn is that isolation results in suffering. As we navigate the joys and challenges of life, no one should be alone. At PEPS, we will continue to strive to foster connection and community. We invite you to join us as we take a deeper look at the social brain and learn about why social connection is fundamental to our health.

Grandparent Meet Ups

Grandparent Meet Ups are informal gatherings organized by grandparents and open to all grandparents. The goal is for grandparents to get to know other grandparents in their area and share the joys and challenges of grandparenting. Take advantage of this opportunity to connect with other grandparents.

Interested in hosting a monthly grandparent meet up? Contact if you are interested in 'hosting' one of these monthly Grandparent Meet Ups.  Hosting means that you determine the monthly meet up date and time; choose the place (coffee shop, restaurant, ...) where you would like to meet other grandparents; and be at that place during the day/time you've chosen. PEPS will do the PR!
