Event Details:

More than 10 percent of Ohio households consist of grandparents raising grandchildren and that number is growing. So we created the Grandparent Project - a way for grandparents to connect with their peers and learn about the legal, financial and educational worlds that have changed considerably since their first go-round as parents! 

*Please note that sessions are held at West Toledo AND Kent Branch locations. 

SOCIAL MEDIA & INTERNET SAFETY 
What’s a snap? WhatsApp? What are teens doing online these days? Learn about the social media outlets and websites that teens use and how to keep them safe while they are online.

June 11 | 6 p.m. | West Toledo 

RESOURCES 
There are many resources in the Toledo area that can assist grandparents who are raising their grandchildren. Engage with a number of community partners during our resource fair and learn how these organizations can provide support for you and your family.

June 26 | 6 p.m. | Kent

EDUCATION
Dr. Michael Carr from Toledo Public School as he discusses your student's education, including current educational standards in Ohio, how to communicate with educators and teachers and best practices to help your student succeed.

There is no cost or registration needed to attend. For more information or questions, please call 419.259.5290. Dinner and a youth program are a part of all sessions, so grandparents are also invited to bring their grandchildren.
