northern new jersey Chapter Peer Groups
WE'RE LOOKING FOR NEW MEMBERS....THAT'S YOU!!
The heart and soul of TTN are its small groups. This is where women connect – face to face – to explore what’s next together.
Peer groups are informal, shared leadership groups composed of 8-12 TTN members who meet on a monthly basis to engage in informal discussions. These groups provide a safe and supportive environment in which women may have thought-provoking and stimulating conversations relating to career or personal transitions.
Groups generate topics of mutual interest and relevance to their current lives. Discussion topics range from those that are light-hearted and fun to others that help members to define and think through their futures. Each group works to find a comfortable way to select topics and share the responsibilities that make a shared leadership group run smoothly. Every group has an experienced TTN partner to help them during the initial meetings or at any point where they feel they need re-direction.
Peer groups are a special feature of The Transition Network; the foundation for a meaningful experience as a TTN member while providing opportunities for connection, new friendships and mutually supportive exploration. The intention of these groups is for women to share and learn from each other, and while the groups are meant to create a supportive environment, they are neither support groups nor therapy groups and cannot substitute for professional help when a member may confront a personal life crisis and need special assistance.
Peer Groups are organized and launched when a sufficient number of members (usually, 8-10 to get started) are available. Please DO NOT DESPAIR if you do not get placed immediately in a peer group upon signing up for TTN. Interested members are placed on a waiting list and as soon as there is a critical mass, a new PG is created.
AND, if you are eager to experience what Peer Groups are all about, and do not wish to wait for a PG to be formed or become available, check out the Special Interest Groups and Chapter Events. You just may find the perfect group to engage your interests and passions.
We would love to meet you!!
