When people hear about PEPS through their personal network of friends, co-workers, acquaintances, they are much more likely to take notice and sign up.
My participation in PEPS and involvement with the organization over the past 4 years has been a rewarding adventure.
Like thousands of parents in this region, the newborn couples group (2004) was instrumental in our early months with Theo and I will always be grateful for the role PEPS played in my life. I will also treasure my experience as a volunteer group leader (2005), board volunteer (2006) and board member (2006-2008).
Not only did I learn how to create an environment for peer support, I gained deep appreciation for the roles as well as the variety and volume of work that board members do to support and empower the nonprofit sector.
The education, experience and connections I gained as a PEPS board member have directly influenced my career and I've never been more satisfied with my work.

Many parents' appreciation for PEPS is so strong that they would like to stay involved with the organization beyond continuing to meet with their groups. One of the most meaningful contributions you can make is to help PEPS publicize our programs by generating some enthusiastic word of mouth. We know that when people hear about PEPS through their personal network of friends, co-workers, acquaintances, etc, they are much more likely to take notice and sign up. Ambassadors spread the word about PEPS with this important, and highly meaningful, personal connection.
Ambassadors are so important to PEPS that we have created a section of our website specifically to support your enthusiasm for helping us! Visit our Share pages for a detailed description of the Ambassador role, turn-key communication tools, you can use to spread the word about PEPS, a video highlighting PEPS' impact and lots more.
