Looking for an amazing opportunity to use your skills and talents to help homeschoolers?

HSC is looking for a new Conference Coordinator to take charge of planning and running the 2015 Adventures in Homeschooling Conference. This is a unique opportunity for someone to put their organizational skills to use. The person we are looking for will, in conjunction with the Board of Directors, be in charge of all conference staff, appoint coordinators into key positions, help select speakers, workshops and other activities, take charge in negotiations with the hotel, supervise pre-registration and onsite registration, oversee the conference work exchange program and volunteers, oversee printing of the schedule of events, and other details related to running a successful conference. This is a very special and pivotal position within HSC as the conference is often the first contact for many people with our organization.

People who knew Holt from his college days until his death share stories and details about him that bring his quiet but forceful personality to life for readers and present his ideas about children and learning as part of their own lives, not just theory.

Homeschooling is an alternative to conventional schooling which may be chosen for a variety of reasons: academic, religious, social, personal, safety, philosophical, and more. Whatever initially leads parents to make this choice, homeschooling nearly always evolves into more than an alternative educational choice - it becomes a lifestyle of personal responsibility, freedom, and joy.
