We embrace the following core values:
Diversity - We embrace all genders, races, sexual orientations, and spiritual beliefs.
Respect - Respect moves us to value diverse perspectives in the homeschooling community.
Community - We believe in fostering personal relationships amongst our group, and encourage all members to take an active role to strengthen our homeschool community.
Collaboration - We support new ideas and activities through open communication and a willingness to work together.
Service - We encourage all in our group to use their unique abilities to advance the well-being of our community.
Lifelong Learning – We encourage the pursuit of knowledge throughout life to improve our whole community.
Want to Join? Families actively homeschooling in Central Oregon may click “Join This Group!” on the home page. You will then have 30 days to decide whether or not it's a good fit for your family and to pay $5 annual dues. Dues are collected for the sole purpose of covering the costs of Meetup.com.
How does our community work? Our community is bonded by our gatherings such as weekly park days, family potlucks, field trips, parent's only outings and more. In order for our community to thrive members are encouraged to participate in and initiate activities.
