Welcome! This group is for Russian-speaking parents of New Jersey, who want to meet other families and foster a community where their children can socialize in Russian, enjoy Russian holidays and traditions together, and simply have fun! Our goals are dual: to help our kids communicate in Russian in varied and enjoyable ways, and also for us, parents, to connect with other Russian parents in the area and share useful information.
Originally founded in September 2011 in Jersey City, we pride ourselves on doing everything on a volunteer basis, with our own hands and heads, and for the well being of our children. Anyone can be a member or an organizer and everyone's ideas are welcomed.
We meet anywhere members choose- in the parks, during events, at people's homes, etc. Meetups include a variety of activities, ranging from just getting together on a playground to attending cultural events to organizing holidays and picnics for large groups of parents and kids. All members are encouraged to create meetups at a place and time convenient for them!
This meetup is for parents with at least one child younger than 10 years old. Parents who live outside of New Jersey are welcome, but they must be able to attend meetups. Again, please don't hesitate to make your own meetups! Please see "Pages" for more information.
This is not a public meetup, and members must be approved by an Organizer in order to join. Please fill out a profile with a photograph of yourself. We encourage active participation.
