Young people play a special role in shaping and leading in our community. Our work is designed with their spirit and interest at our center. We partner with kids to design our menus, lessons, field trips, and projects.
We celebrate the freedom of choice that homeschooling offers all of our families. We also understand the responsibilities that homeschool entails. Parents in our group are respected as their own "homeschool administrators" and invited to join in sharing learning with all of us!
We work with local, national, and global partners to provide opportunities for learning through service. This includes food drives, stream clean ups, 4-H service, and Kids for Peace initiatives.
