Charlottesville, VA

Saturday, February 23, 2013, from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. Free and open to interested parents and students (ages 13 through 18). There is no childcare, but young children are allowed if they stay with parents and have something quiet to occupy their time. Register by 9 p.m. on Friday, February 22.

Transcripts, dual enrollment, testing, college or not–oh, my! Homeschooling in middle- and high school can seem overwhelming. Classical Conversations (CC) helps parents prepare for and meet this challenge with its Challenge program and much more! Hear practical advice, see samples, and get encouragement. CC is a Christian organization dedicated to equipping families to teach at home.

1.2 HSLDA CAP Lobbyist Training – Purcellville – Register Now for March 4

Patrick Henry College
10 Patrick Henry Circle
Purcellville, VA

Monday, March 4, 2013, from 10 a.m. to no later than 3:30 p.m., with a break for lunch at noon. Cost: $15/family to help subsidize lunch; free for alumni. While the training is recommended for the entire family, keep in mind that children need to be mature enough to handle visiting congressional offices with you. CAP lobbyists should live within easy driving distance to D.C.

HSLDA created the Congressional Action Program (CAP) so that homeschool families can meet and talk to members of Congress on issues related to homeschooling and parental rights. Before you can join HSLDA’s lobbying efforts, families are asked to complete the one-day training program (offered once a year). The CAP training day will inform you of the battles we currently face in Washington, D.C. and equip you with the tools to partner with HSLDA in protecting homeschooling nationwide. Learn about legislation and practice lobbying techniques and ways you can make your voice heard.

See the website for more information or to register; contact CAP@hslda.org or 540-338-5600 to ask questions.
