Community happens here

COMMUNITY

“But what about socialization?!?” Looking for an answer to that oh so persistent question? Come join us and find your homeschool tribe. At Voyagers Homeschool Coop families with pre-K to high school aged kids gather each week to learn, share our knowledge and interests, and have fun. Members attend up to four study groups each week during an eight-week semester in the fall, winter, and spring.


COLLABORATION

Running a cooperative is a joint effort. There would be no cooperative, no community, and no shared programs for our children without everyone’s active and consistent participation. Parents are required to supervise their children online, lead study groups, and take on coop-wide roles. While parents do stay busy at Voyagers Coop, there is still plenty of adult social time! We meet online and talk, knit, share interests, and just get to know one another better. Many, many Voyagers parents have developed and continue to develop deep, lasting friendships with one another.


COOP

Voyagers Coop typically consists of four virtual Study Groups (small group activities about an hour long each) and two hours of virtual unstructured time. During the virtual unstructured time, we share a meal, chat, make plans, and play.


STUDY GROUPS

Coop families work together to create programs that satisfy the interests of the community. Programming is dynamic and changes each Coop session as families develop new topics to meet the changing interests of our members. Study groups are usually led by members, although families sometimes decide to bring in an outside instructor for an additional fee. Tweens and teens are even encouraged to help lead study groups if they are interested. Participation in study groups is based on interest and ability, not age.
