A local private school, Education Revolution, is offering homeschooling parents, as well as those considering to homeschool their children, an opportunity to maximize their homeschooling journey at the first staging of the Central Florida Homeschool Expo and Show 2019.
The event scheduled for July 15 will be hosted in at the Reach Building Headquarters, 113 N. Stewart Ave., Kissimmee, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
This is the first micro-local homeschool expo and showcase for families in Osceola, Orange and Seminole Counties.
Education Revolution is an official private school registered with the Florida Department of Education. The organization supports the homeschooling community through a variety of options, which allows students to work at home under the tutelage of school staff and parents or other home educators.
Director of the Education Revolution, educator and organizer of the expo, Yolanda Newton stated, “I am so excited about the first staging of the expo. Explaining her motivation to host the event, she said: “I want to connect homeschooling families with local resources that might meet their needs. I have noticed that there are so many local resources that homeschooling families aren’t aware exist. I realized that an EXPO would help local businesses, organizations, and resources, to enlighten homeschoolers about the fantastic things they are offering was highly needed in our community. And I am all about filling the gaps in the homeschooling community.”
Several local businesses have already registered to showcase their offerings at the expo. Attendees will get the opportunity to:
• Speak with local homeschooling experts.
• Discover local enrichment classes and programs.
• Discover offerings from local non-profits.
• Meet fellow homeschoolers.
• Find new co-op.
• Kick/reset their homeschooling journey for maximum success.
Spaces are still available for organizations that offer events or resources and would like to showcase their offerings. Registration is free for non- profit businesses, but there is a small fee of $5 for homeschool co-ops and $30 for profit businesses and organizations.
