WHAT IS S.H.A.R.E.?
 

S.H.A.R.E. (St. Louis Homeschooling Activities, Resources and Encouragement) is an independent support group founded and operated by volunteer parents who home educate their children in the Greater St. Louis Area. Families from all over the St. Louis region and nearby Illinois counties are members of SHARE, although we are based in the South City, South County and Mid County areas.

We are a diverse group of homeschoolers with a wide variety of learning and teaching styles. Some families are large, others are small; some are homeschooling veterans of twenty years, many are just beginning.

The majority of members are Christians but people of all faiths are welcome in S.H.A.R.E.  We are united by our choice to homeschool our children and give them the best possible educational experience AND by our desire to protect homeschooling rights in Missouri and elsewhere. 

Our main goal is to inform, equip and encourage families in their homeschooling journey!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

SUPPORT GROUP MEETING INFORMATION
We  used to hold monthly meetings, but because homeschool moms can now gather so much information from our website and because there are so many subgroups within SHARE that meet on a weekly basis, there was no longer a need to conduct monthly meetings.  If you are a new homeschooler and would like to talk to someone, please contact Kerrie Tate (kertate@aol.com) or Cathy Mullins (Ekcjmullins@gmail.com) and we can make arrangements to meet with you at our Homelink location on a Tuesday or Thursday.
Thanks! smiley

HOW TO JOIN S.H.A.R.E:


Annual membership dues are $15.00 a year ($16.00 via Paypal) but are pro-rated throughout the year.  A rate schedule is shown on our "Request Membership" page. Scholarships are available for those that cannot afford the $15.

Being a member entitles you to access the "Private Pages" of this website which includes an events calendar, an inter-membership forum for questions & discussions, a free classifieds section, a free family website that you can share with family and friends, a photo gallery of events and much more!  Membership also entitles you to receive timely announcements and updates on events (field trips, classes, parties, youth events, community service opportunities, art fairs, spelling & geography bees, graduations, and much more!) and the chance to sign up before the general "public."


Fill out the online Membership Request Form (see link on the very top of this page) and submit via the internet.  That page will give you detailed directions about how to pay your membership fee.  You can do it online via Paypal or send it by regular mail. We will then approve your membership and give you total access to the website.  

NOTE: In order for your S.H.A.R.E. membership to be processed and finalized,  you must send the membership fee via Paypal transaction or mail a check to Coordinator Cathy Mullins. Just filling out the online form alone does not activate membership.
