LET’S BUILD COMMUNITY TOGETHER A common thread among many homeschoolers is the challenge of finding community. If you cannot find a community where your family thrives, let’s create community together. The central conference goal is to provide a friendly, informal gathering giving opportunities to connect with others while have thoughtful discussions.
THE NEW CONFERENCE FORMAT After much deliberation, the overall conference format is brand new this year. We have put aside the panels and speeches in favor of table talks.
TABLE TALKS The table talks are facilitated small-group discussions of up to six participants along with two facilitators. These discussions are meant to connect homeschoolers having shared experiences with specific topics. The conference strives to create a comfortable environment where these intimate group discussions can really help connect participates with each other and help build a strong foundation for the homeschooling community.
