The HIM membership year runs from June 1 to May 31 and requires a non-refundable $30 annual membership fee. HIM is made up entirely of volunteers and members are required to serve in at least one volunteer position (all members will complete a volunteer form when joining).
HIM will offer a prorated ($15) new membership option for the remainder of the 2022-23 school year January 11-17. All new/prospective members need to attend the virtual new member meeting which will be held on January 11 at 7:00pm. You must sign up for the meeting in advance on our calendar website here using an email address that you check regularly so that we may contact you with the details for the virtual meeting. Please be aware that co-op (our weekly classes) is full for 2022-23 but new members will be able to enjoy all other HIM opportunities.
HIM Membership benefits include:
~Monthly support meetings (Sept thru May)
~Opportunity to participate in weekly co-op classes (space permitting)
~Yearly notification, assessment, and testing information
~Private Homeschool-Life group site with resources, forums, calendar, and more
~Private Facebook group
~Outings & Outreach opportunities including field trips, fun activities/events, and community service projects
~Local weekly summer park play days
Any local homeschool family may join HIM, but we do require that members:
~be home educating families in which a parent/guardian is the primary educator of at least one child (this excludes virtual public schools such as OHVA and remote/online enrollment in a public school district)
~agree to respect the Christian beliefs and values of the group when participating in HIM activities, events, and online interactions.
