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 today’s podcast Carol Topp interviews homeschool leader Angela Weaver. Angela runs a large group in Lynchburg, Virginia and she shares her experience on many topics. Angela had so much advice, that it takes three episodes and this is the third of three parts!

In this episode of the HomeschoolCPA podcast, Carol Topp and Angela discuss:

  • Having a common vision is key
  • Ideas on 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
  • How serving others can build community within your group
  • Are homeschoolers losing a sense of community?
  • What could happen if we don’t have a supportive community?

My favorite quote from Angela in this episode is “It’s important that everyone is on the same page so you make decisions that stay in line with your purpose.”

In the podcast, Carol mentioned the I Am a Homeschool Group Leader Facebook Group. It is a closed group (meaning you have to request to join) of 530 homeschool leaders from across the USA. You can join us here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/72534255742/
