Conference Volunteers Needed!
The 2014 VaHomeschoolers Conference is put together by homeschooling parents like you. We need teen and adult volunteers on Friday and Saturday to help with conference setup and teardown, the registration desk, the Used Resource Sale, assisting our wonderful vendors and escorting our speakers. Volunteering is a great opportunity to get to know other homeschoolers and to participate in the conference. Volunteer here…
Adult Volunteers—Make Your Own Schedule
We value your gift of time and energy and want to work around the real reason you are coming: energizing sessions and resources. Two-hour volunteer shifts, organized around your schedule, and Friday and Saturday access to the Volunteer Hospitality Lounge (stocked with food and drinks) ensure you’ll have time to give back and meet some new friends.
Teen Volunteers—Get Free Admission and a Pizza Party
Have fun! Meet other homeschooled teens from Virginia! Earn service hours and letters of reference! All this, plus free registration to the conference, a Friday night pizza party for teen volunteers (3:30–5:30 p.m.) and Friday and Saturday access to the Volunteer Hospitality Room (good eats!) on Saturday.
Teen volunteers must be 13 or older and come ready to work. We need help setting up and tearing down, setting up and working the Used Resource Sale and assisting vendors.
Don’t Miss Out—Volunteer!

What’s So Special About VaHomeschoolers?
We’ll admit it. We do think we’re special. VaHomeschoolers is based on principles of inclusion, congeniality, direction from members and volunteer officers.
- We’re focused. Our sole intent is to help homeschoolers. We have no religious or partisan political agenda, and we do not take a position on non-homeschooling issues.
- We’re inclusive. From membership to election of our board of directors, we are a fully inclusive organization.
- We’re member-directed. Our board of directors takes direction from our members on issues ranging from magazine policy to positions on legislative matters.
- Our officers are volunteers. Dues cover material expenses, allowing us to keep membership at a low $29 per year.
- We build relationships. We work with legislators, school boards and administrations to build bridges and create understanding.
Support the Conference and VaHomeschoolers
Even if you can’t volunteer at the conference, there are other great ways to support VaHomeschoolers!
Be a Sponsor or Make an In-Kind Donation
Sponsors make a donation to support a specific area of the conference. You can choose from Family Programming, Volunteer Appreciation or Talent Show and Ice Cream Social. We also have a need for specific types of in-kind gifts. Please contact President for more details on either kind of donation.
Support the Used Resource Sale
Our Used Resource Sale is dependent on donations, so take this opportunity to de-clutter your house! We’re looking for curricula, books, videos, games, manipulatives, CDs and anything else you’ve found useful in your homeschool but are now ready to part with. Please contact Usedresourcesale.
Donate Your Box Tops and Ink Cartridges
VaHomeschoolers collects box tops and used printer ink cartridges. Bring these to the conference and drop them off at the VaHomeschoolers table. (Please do not mail them).
Make a Recurring or One-Time Donation
VaHomeschoolers programming is dependent upon donations. It is easy to make your tax- deductible contribution online at VaHomeschoolers.org/donate/ or by adding it to your conference registration.
