This offering is meant especially for folks in this age range (we call “young adults”) who have experienced big grief in their lives -- the loss of a parent, sibling, partner, child, or close friend. We’ll offer the chance to connect with others who have lost loved ones in small, peer-led groups. We’ll reflect, share stories, and build connections across the isolation of grief.
The space will be hosted by two organizations devoted to offering grief support & community for young adults. The Covid Grief Network is an emerging project that connects young adults who are grieving the illness or death of someone close to covid-19 to free emotional and spiritual support -- and to each other. The Dinner Party is a platform for grieving 20- and 30-somethings to find peer community and build lasting relationships.
Both of these organizations show up at the intersection of grief and young adulthood, and we want to help connect grieving young adults with those who get it most -- each other.
