How to Find Your Homeschool Village

So you’re ready to start homeschooling, or you’re thinking about it, or you’re already doing it but you really need a change, right?

How do you find your people?  How do you make sure your kids are well-socialized?

Watch the video below to find out, or keep scrolling to read the post.

Homeschooling is about more than curriculum and co-ops and pajamas.  It’s a lifestyle.  In order to thrive, you’re going to want some support from like-minded people.  It takes a village to homeschool a child, y’all.  Whether you join forces with others to teach your kids, or just gather some support for yourself through a social media group–you need a homeschool village. 

There are 3 ways to find your homeschool village:

1) Co-ops and other teaching groups

There are many different kinds of homeschool teaching groups, such as:

    • Co-ops – academic and enrichment
    • Tutorial programs
    • Hybrid private homeschool programs
    • Homeschooling pods

2)  Social media support groups

    • Facebook groups
    • Youtube communities
    • Yahoo list serve groups
    • Meetup groups

3)  Other opportunities for socialization

    • Extracurricular activities
    • A la carte classes
    • camps
    • Churches/religious centers
    • Athletic teams
    • Community centers and clubs
    • Library programs
    • The world as a whole
    • Take them with you to run errands

No matter how you choose to educate your children, you don’t have to go it alone.  With a little bit of initiative and out of the box thinking, you can give your children a well-rounded education while meeting their social needs.
