Grandparents Walking Along Beach With GranddaughterEn Español | If you are a grandparent raising grandchildren, you are not alone. There are over 300,000 Californians caring for their grandchildren, including an estimated 24,000 in San Diego County. That’s why AARP is proud to be a part of the 2013 Grandparents Raising Grandchildren Symposium taking place in San Diego County on Saturday, September 7th from 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.

The main event site will be Jacobs Center in San Diego, with keynote speeches webcast to El Cajon, San Marcos, and Chula Vista. Each venue will offer unique activities, presentations, or workshops following the keynotes and all presentations will be simulcast in Spanish. AARP will be at the Chula Vista site sharing information on housing, public assistance, and nutrition programs, as well as the legal issues around adoption and custody. The event is free and  includes continental breakfast and lunch; in addition, childcare will be provided and exhibitors will be on hand to share information and resources.
