GETTING CONNECTED WITH LOCAL UNSCHOOLERS CAN HELP IN SO MANY WAYS!

  • Meet other families on a similar homeschooling/parenting path
  • Make friends for your kids – plan outings around shared interests
  • Find out how local unschoolers interpret the law (homeschooling laws vary by state)
  • Learn about local community resources

We’ve collected our favorite unschooling Facebook groups.  Our goal is to try to help you find unschooling groups a little closer to home.
We’ve included cities, regions, states, countries, and even a Spanish-only international unschooling group.  If you know of others, fill out the short form at the bottom of this page. Thanks!

Be brave! Reach out!

Remember that it these groups are all run by volunteers busily hanging out with their own families.
Be patient if it takes a little while for them to get back with you – but be persistent! 🙂
