Mission Statement

The mission of Deseret Homeschoolers is to make opportunities for families involved in the intellectual, social, and spiritual education of their own children to connect with other families involved in similar efforts.

Our Vision

Deseret Homeschoolers is meant to be of interest to LDS families involved in the education of their own children, although membership is not limited to LDS families, nor is a statement of faith required for participation.

Deseret Homeschoolers is meant to provide connections, share information, develop leadership skills and spiritual commitment in youth, and help families enhance their homeschooling experience.

Deseret Homeschoolers is an association. As such, the focus of activities will be based on what the participating families are seeking in their relationships with others. Participating families are expected to be involved in serving, leading, and helping to make activities happen. Parents will be totally responsible for the safety and behavior of their own children when participating in any Deseret Homeschoolers activity.
