Bring on the experts!

PIPsqueaks Groups are not just a time for families to bond - it's a time for them to learn together as well! PIP keeps a running list of Guest Speakers, generous individuals who volunteer their time and talents by visiting our PIPsqueaks Groups to talk about their unique area of expertise with our parents. PIPsqueaks Groups are greatly enhanced by these professionals' gifts, and we are so grateful to them for their contribution.

interested in Becoming a Volunteer Guest Speaker?

PIP welcomes local professionals to partner with us to share their wisdom and knowledge at our group sessions as guest speakers. Some key topics covered by the groups include early childhood development, couples' relationships, infant health, breastfeeding, and more. While we have a strict "no-sales" policy, the parents will inevitably have exposure to you and your expertise. Please read our Introduction for Guest Speakers to familiarize yourself with some basic information. If you are experienced in a topic related to parenting and are interested in becoming a Guest Speaker, please review the Guest Speaker Policy and complete the Application, and we will be in touch as soon as possible for an interview and orientation.
