Starting to Homeschool Webinar Series

"Starting to Homeschool" is a series of six Webinars for those interested in starting the journey to homeschooling, or just learning more about homeschooling. The Webinars are held using Google Hangouts on Air, and shouldn't require any special software. Each Webinar will be a half-hour presentation by Patrick Farenga, followed by a half hour of questions and answers with attendees. Each is free to attend live and to watch in recorded form for the next 24 hours.

  • Are you wondering if homeschooling can work for you?
  • Do you know that you don’t need to be a certified teacher in any state in order to help your children learn at home and in your community?
  • Are you seeking personalized, bold education options that build on your children’s strengths rather than conventional curricula?

Join the mailing list HERE to get reminders and the links needed to log into each seminar.  To have access to the full set of recordings, please purchase the archive set. If you can help us advertise this program, please consider joining our affiliate marketing program.


The second annual Homeschool+ Conference was August 4th - 8th, 2014. This annual online and free event provides an opportunity to share strategies, practices, and resources for those who are involved with homeschooling, unschooling, free schools, democratic schools, and other forms of alternative, independent, and non-traditional education. 

To attend future conferences, to be kept informed of the latest conference news and updates, and/or to submit to present, please 
join this network! The conference welcome letter is here. Recordings from this year's event are here.

As a part of the conference this year, we're also holding a "virtual" Alternative Education Film Festival (the "Alt Ed Film Fest"): seven films that are available online during the month of August, with live director interviews as well (listed in the conference schedule for your convenience).
