This is an intentional community/network for families of color who homeschool (or are interested in collective homeschooling). This group will hold a safe space for children and families of color where our children can honor their humanity and interact in race-positive environment. This is a safe space for families of all backgrounds, orientations, genders, and vaccination statuses. Our children will have the opportunity to interact and learn with kids of all ages who are raised to be kind, loving, and respectful to themselves and others. We are not religiously based but will be rooted in Universal/Spiritual principles such as love, humility, compassion, kindness and empathy. We will initially hold meetups for families, play dates, field trips and camping excursions in the East Bay area. If there is enough interest and support, we can expand into sharing teachers (or forming a school) for enhanced learning classes in music, art, permaculture, languages, STEM, etc.
We will also focus on character building and giving to others by being involved in community service projects and merging forces with other educational centers who support homeschooling.
How we work
If you're a member of this group, consider yourself a partner and co-creator. This group is about supporting a democratic, de-centralized process that allows everyone to contribute to our children's learning and experiences. This way, we can honor and support the diversity of ideas and perspectives we all bring to the table.
In order to maintain a thriving and vibrant community, members are expected to participate in regular meetings, lead and organize events, as well as show up to and support each other's event.
