Quaker Connections

We are members of Palo Alto Meeting of Pacific Yearly Meeting of the Religious Society of Friends [Quakers].

For an informal e-mail list on Quaker topics, go to the Yahoo! Group called Dry Clean Only [because most Friends don't practice water baptism.]

We are developing a page of Quaker Youth links to Quaker meetings, schools, camps, and youth projects including a list of films on peace and war issues for family viewing.

Service Projects

The Sleepwetting Forum is a web-site we created for family-to-family support in understanding, managing, and working to resolve sleepwetting [a.k.a. bedwetting or nocturnal enuresis] and other loss of bladder control by school-age children and teens.

AVP - Alternatives to Violence Project is an international network of groups offering basic and advanced workshops and training for facilitators. HIPP Help Increase the Peace Project is the adaptation of AVP for teen and preteen groups. We are available as facilitators for workshops in AVP, HIPP, creative conflict resolution, and cooperative recreation.

Balkan Sunflowers - BSF is an international grassroots organisation, founded in 1999 to aid Kosovar refugees. Sandy and other volunteers went to Kosova and Albania to work as friends and neighbors, helping restore community life in ways that emergency aid and political support could not. BSF staff and volunteers continue to help in ways that money alone can not. Sandy serves as treasurer of BSF-USA.

Ben Lomond Quaker Center is a conference center set in 80 acres of redwood and oak forest near Santa Cruz, California. The center offers workshops in Quaker process, personal growth, spiritual concerns and social action. We help with two week-long residential co-ed summer camps there for ages 9 to 12 and 12 to 15.

Kiwanis International supports service projects for youth and families in our community and around the world. We are members of the Bayshore Community Kiwanis Club of East Palo Alto.
