Asian-American Families of Greater Boston is an online community of Boston area families committed to giving our children a strong sense of Asian heritage, while having lots of fun doing it! We have several play dates and activities scheduled throughout each month. Our group IS NOT FOR PROFIT and is truly made up of community members such as you, who are simply looking for ways to connect with other families with similar interest. All events are hosted by volunteer members either in their private homes and/or public spaces such as parks, playgrounds, and more. All members are encouraged to take turns hosting, otherwise we would not have any events.
Members take turn hosting:
- Monthly family meal get-together.
- Story time and play dates.
- Outings to zoos, parks, museums, festivals and more!
Our biggest event each month is the Family Meal get-together. It's when our members' get-together for a big pot-luck lunch play date! Family meals are great meet-and-greet events, especially for new members. You know what they say, "Come as strangers, leave as friends!"
If this sounds like something you and your family can benefit from, please check us out online and join us! We are open to all families with an interest in Asian culture!
For security reasons all our members information and event locations are private and shown to members only.When signing up for an account profile, please include a self portrait, picture of your child, or you and your child. Keep in mind you do have the ability to have a different profile picture and information to be use only for THIS Meetup group. It will be shown separately from your MAIN Meetup profile and accessible only by members of this group for added privacy.
Many events are held in volunteered private homes/spaces. Having a self photo on file is part of our safety measure. This lets our event host recognize valid attendees before allowing them in.
