Which Homeschool Association should I Join?
Help! I don't know which homeschool association to join? Totally get it I feel overwhlemed as well. The choices can be overwhelming just like trying to choose a homeschool curriculum but it can be done and I am here to help.
I would choose 1 or 2 local homeschool support groups to join, if money permits a co-op and then one of these two associations:
I composed a list of active local homeschool support groups and co-ops. This list does not include local Facebook, Yahoo, or Meetup groups. There are so many and found that a bit overwhelming. I definitely don't want to overwhelm you and therefore shared a few tips of my own to keep my homeschool support simple but effective below.
If you are on Facebook I would search for local homeschool groups in my area. I'd do that by asking around in my church or local friends or local homeschool groups using the list above or a quick serach on the search bar inside Facebook.
Second tip: I would pick one or two to join and really exhaust my resources there before moving on to another group. I would keep "shopping" until I found one that I like.
I personally like my church's group which is on Facebook, Home-Run Watermark ( Dallas based)
I also joined other groups that are close by to my city:
Wildlings | (Rockwall, Wylie, Garland, Rowlett, and Royse City
DFW Hispanic/Latino Homeschoolers | DFW Area
Dallas Unschooling | Dallas, TX
DFW Homeschool Guide (my personal group) | DFW
White Rock Homeschoolers | White Rock
DFW Easy Peasy Homeschool | DFW (Easy Peasy Homeschool Curriculum)
Wild and Free | Wylie, TX
There are so many groups just find one that is active, helpful and that meet up regularly.
