What is PAMP

The Parents' Club of Palo Alto and Menlo Park (PAMP) is a diverse group of parents who have come together to form a volunteer-led, nonprofit organization to offer community, events, resources, knowledge, and support on common interests. PAMP is the largest parent organization on the Peninsula with membership spanning the Bay Area.
Our mission is to build communities for families with young children by hosting events and forums, and providing resources in Palo Alto, Menlo Park and the surrounding areas.

PAMP consists of both an online and in-person community.

  • Our vibrant online community features forums on our Facebook Parent Group. In the group, you can discuss general issues, find and list nannies/babysitters and domestic help. You can also buy and sell in the classifieds section where you can find a great selection of baby and kid items. PAMP also features blog posts by members and articles featuring the latest parenting news and trends.
  • There is an array of in-person offerings where you can connect live with other PAMP members.  We produce three large events each year – the Preschool Fair, Rummage Sale and the ever-popular Family Day.  In addition we host special events every month such as Day at the Farm, Bounce House events, Moms night out and other fun activities.  

All of these PAMP offerings are made possible thanks to the dedication and hard work of our member-volunteers and through our partnerships/sponsorships that help support our events. In addition, we have a small team of part-time staff that keep our operations and key programs running smoothly.
