What we're about
WELCOME TO MODERN MOMS!
Modern Moms is an active and creative group where progressive moms and their children can spend time together exploring the world through learning, play and intelligent conversation. If you are looking for a community of open-minded and adventurous people seeking to raise their children to value education, science, kindness and diversity, please consider joining. In addition to watching PBS, listening to NPR and being comfortable discussing left-leaning issues and politics, we plan activities in and around Knoxville where moms and kids can meet new friends, share experiences and have fun together. We enjoy cultural activities, scenic locations, service opportunities, good food and fun!
Most of our meetups will be located in West Knoxville. We will have some meetups in Bearden, Sequoyah Hills, Downtown Knoxville, and various other locations.
To join Modern Moms, prospective members answer a few questions and meet one of the group organizers in person. Once approved, Modern Moms members become part of a collective effort to create a fun, safe, inclusive, interesting, welcoming and respectful community that reflects the following values:
- Respect for the environment
- Interest in science and appreciation of the arts
- Desire for personal growth
- Community involvement
Modern Moms relies on its members to suggest and host meetups that allow us to:
- Socialize with other moms and their children
- Learn about other cultures
- Explore our local area
- Stay current and informed about what is going on in our world
- Gain new experiences
- Grow and develop, while encouraging our children to do the same
