As a leader and mentor for homeschool moms and dads, you have often counseled others, "Don't try to do it alone!" The same advice applies to you and your fellow leaders! You also need a group or a network where you can ask questions, compare notes, and be with others who understand the unique demands and rewards of serving homeschool families.

It is for this reason that AFHE is pleased to host a leadership conference for support group, co-op, club and resource center leaders who serve the Arizona homeschool community. For many years this event has been providing connection and refreshment to those who work so hard to support homeschool families around the state! We invite these leaders to come be encouraged, inspired, and refreshed to continue doing the work set out before them. This event is an invitation only event; the opportunity to attend the leadership conference is a benefit of being affiliated with AFHE and having your group info listed on our website and our mobile app.

Attendance is not limited to only the officers or leadership committee of your group; others who play key roles and are potential group leaders are also welcome. If you would like to attend and are not currently affiliated with AFHE, please consider applying HERE.
