How to set up a PAPAYA group…
PAPAYA is about connecting parents as much it is about connecting young people. We all thrive on relationship. One of PAPAYAs aims is to encourage parents to meet together and create community. If you are interested in the work of PAPAYA and would like to meet likeminded parents we would encourage you to set up a group or invite PAPAYA to your school.
A PAPAYA group can simply be a group of parents meeting for coffee and discussing some of the issues around teens and phones. We hope, very soon, to have a short video you could show at a coffee morning.
On a larger scale you could contact your local school to see if they would collaborate with PAPAYA and allow us to run a whole school event. This would involve a PAPAYA representative giving a short talk on mobile phone use in teens and facilitating group discussion.
