Featured Lesson: Finding Homeschool Friends and Building Community
Finding Homeschool Friends and Building Community
“The world is so empty if one thinks only of mountains, rivers & cities; but to know someone who thinks & feels with us, & who, though distant, is close to us in spirit, this makes the earth for us an inhabited garden.” ― Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
Not everyone has access to a great co-op or a city filled with active homeschoolers. Even if you do, sometimes it's difficult to find "your people"—the ones who "get" you, who homeschool in a similar way, who share your values and dreams.
One of our goals here at The Homeschool Alliance is to create a community of that kind—we want you to find your people here, with us. Not only that, we want to help you connect to those friends in a deeper, more personal way.
This month, Mary Wilson (Brave Writer Party Schooler and Book Club Instructor) will join us to discuss ways to develop close homeschooling friends that will walk the journey with you. We'll share what has worked for us over the years, we'll talk about the in-person meet-up we have planned in 2019, and we'll help you find each other in the Alliance itself.
