The Club was founded in 1991 by a group of 5 mothers as a way of connecting with each other. It became known as the Mother’s Club of Palo Alto and Menlo Park. As the area grew, so did the Club. In 2002, the Club was renamed into the Palo Alto Menlo Park Parents Club (PAMP) and became a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization with the mission of enriching the lives of families with young children, by providing resources, support and community in Palo Alto, Menlo Park and the surrounding areas. PAMP was governed by a volunteer Board of Directors charged with strategic planning and a Leadership team led by the Club’s President in charge of day to day operations.
By 2008, the Club had grown so large that staff positions were added to support the Club’s operational efficiency. Today, PAMP is a vibrant community of families across the peninsula with an active online forum community and a wide range of classes and events throughout the week to keep families with young children connected, informed and entertained.
