What we're about

Hello homeschool families!

Have you heard about a homeschool event you'd like to share with the community? Put it on the calendar. Looking for some homeschool events to attend? Then check out the calendar and get started!

ANY MEMBER IS WELCOME TO POST AN EVENT. Want to offer an event of your own? Absolutely! New events going up daily... let's get together :)

Most of the events will be FREE or have a modest charge to offset rentals or admission costs, but at no time will any meetup charge for profit.

FAQs by members and applicants:

Q: Is this group religious?

A: Nope! The religion of this group is Kindness and Inclusion. All are welcome.

Q: Is there an age-range for this group?

A: This meetup will be geared toward ages 6+. HOWEVER, that being said, if you have smaller children, make it your own meetup by adding your own events to the calendar to suit your interests. You may also send them to me and I will happily add events to help you get out and meet new friends for yourself and your children, whatever their ages.

Fine print:

PLEASE do not join this group if you intend to advertise, market, or sell us anything, promote your business, or profit from us in any way. Do not contact the organizer or the group with requests to advertise in any way.

If you do not attend any meetups within a 60 day period, you may be removed from the group for lack of participation. Our goal is to have a wonderful, ACTIVE group of families that fosters friendship and that can only happen through a committment to participation.

If the next Tuesday isn't the day for you, please consider volunteering the next time. This event will be going on every last Tuesday of the month . all ages welcome :) Meal packing noon to 1pm Cleanup 1 to 1:30pm Good Samaritan Village is a place that have many entrance we need to go tru the main gate with the security guys for them to let us in and give you a map (attached in pictures here too) to the community center. This is near Pleasant Hill and John Young Parkway in Kissimmee. Once John Young crosses over Pleasant Hill, it actually turns into S. OBT, which is can be confusing for me and my gps that is why I put the address of a store right next to the entrance: Good Samaritan Thrift Shop https://goo.gl/maps/afvsT2TtBg6ybViu7
