There are two basic types of homeschool support groups: general, and those that have a specific focus. Within these, there are many, many, variations. Understanding these variations can help you find the support group that is right for you.
As you can guess, general groups include members from different backgrounds, using a variety of homeschooling styles. Groups with a specific focus have shared beliefs, methods, or activities that they believe are important to their homeschooling endeavors. These include, but are not limited to religious convictions, cultural heritage, beliefs regarding specific methods of homeschooling (Unschooling, Classical, Unit Studies, etc.), the use of certain curriculum, or the participation in certain activities, ie., a support group with a sports emphasis.
Many support groups are listed in our Local Homeschooling section. If you do not see one that meets your needs, you can always form one that does.
Remember, fun learning is forever learning!
