About Membership Levels


How we use age groups on the website

Once upon a time, PGR organized sections the website by age groups for PGR offspring.  As the focus on age decreased, however, and have reduced the age groups to only a few matching our membership levels: one for all youth up to 17, one for Young Adults aged 18 to 23, and one for Adult members of PGR (our former youth/YA).

The primary use of this web site among PGR kids and teens is to use the membership directory to find one another, and to post some photos and videos.  Most day-to-day communication among the PGR youth and young adults takes place on other social media platforms.

The Youth and Young Adult pages of the PGR Web site are private to those age groups, although they are moderated by the webmaster or other PGR volunteers; they are designed to be acceptable to everyone in that age group.

This site also supports private spaces for parents and adults.

Parent's Decision

If a parent or guardian does not believe their child or children should have access to these private spaces for our young people, please let us know vie the primary parent's profile, selecting "xxxx" and listing the name(s). In addition, family member's profiles are not created until the primary parent in the household confirms that the email is correct, so there is notice that a request has been made. If you have questions, please email our Profile Manager at profile@pgretreat.com.

What does YA mean? 
In PGR, we use ages as little as possible. The YA distinction is to acknowledge those members as adults but to identify them as a special group.

For example, PGR practice had been that YA are not to be the primary adult supervising children. This means that 18-23 year olds were not asked to be in a position of supervising 15-17 year olds.
