HSC is pleased to introduce to you and welcome our two new recently elected directors

Alexx Souter and Linda Maepa will join Erika Davis-Pitre, Tiffany Sandoval, Jamie Heston, and Martin Whitehead on HSC's Board of Directors.

Alexx is a 24 year old unschooled graduate from Southern California with a passion for enacting positive change in the world. Alexx has worked with HSC as a Teen Conference Committee member and coordinator and helped to spearhead our Young Adult Conference Program. They teach about LGBTQ+ issues in education and in mental health and are going to school in the hopes of entering the mental health field. Alexx loves what HSC has done for them and is excited to continue that work as a Board Member.   

Linda, as you'll see from her bio linked below, is into and interested in just about everything. She's a people person who lives in service to ease suffering and support herself and others to live life to the fullest. Her focus on the board is Special Initiatives that can help our members gain the most from homeschooling, including introducing members to new opportunities and experiences and keeping an ear (and email inbox) open to listen to members, and prospective members, as they share their unmet needs.

Our next board meeting will take place at our annual Conference in San Jose,California on August 8th. Please reach out to us at if you'd like to join us.

Get to know the new board here.

Our next meeting is 8/8/19 in Northern California
at our Annual Conference in San Jose

The HSC Board of Directors holds business meetings several times per year at various locations around the state. HSC members who would like to schedule a visit to a Board meeting or request an item to be added to our meeting agenda, please contact us at to do so.

If you would like to volunteer to host a future board meeting at your home, please let us know.

Are you also excited about homeschooling? Do you value the fact that homeschooling is legal in California and want to protect it? Are you interested in teaming up with other homeschooling parents to ensure our rights continue and spread the word about this amazing educational choice?

HSC offers a chance for you to get involved, make new friends, help others, gain new skills, and really make a difference.

Increasing diversity in HSC’s team of volunteers and membership is a priority for the newly elected Board. We have volunteer positions available that require only a few hours a week commitment, and volunteers will receive training and be supported by a Board liaison.

We are also seeking to fill two more Board seats and want to continue our emphasis on attracting candidates from diverse backgrounds.

Exciting things are coming to HSC.

We’d like to ask you to consider joining us for the ride! Please fill out a volunteer interest form by clicking on the link above or indicate your interest in a board position by contacting us at
