One of the best things about being in a homeschool group is the community of support you can receive. But do you know how to build a sense of community?
In this short podcast episode (15 minutes) Carol Topp, the HomeschoolCPA, interviews homeschool leader Angela Weaver. Angela runs a large group in Lynchburg, Virginia and she shares her experience on many topics including:
- Having a common vision
- How to build a community
- How a fundraiser for others can build community
- A sample purpose statement
- How the purpose statement gets acted out through activities
- Are homeschoolers losing a sense of community?
- What could happen if we don’t have a supportive community?
Angela had so much advice, that it takes three episodes and this is the third of three parts!
