Education Assistance for Homeschooling and Low Income Students

 More and more families are choosing to educate their children themselves in order to decrease government interference in their lives, and that is a cause we want to support! VIA is assisting homeschooling students by providing co-op groups and individual families with curriculum and other educational necessities. 
We will also be providing parents with information and resources for homeschooling and unschooling. Additionally, we intend to offer education resources and materials to low income families whose children are in the public school system to ensure they have the best education experience possible.
Donate below to help us empower longtime homeschoolers as well as the huge influx of newcomers to the homeschooling community, and to assist low-income families who need to use the public school system.
If you are in need of assistance with procuring educational materials or simply need information to get started, don’t hesitate to fill out a form below.  If you already know your specific needs, please list them out in as much detail as possible.  Our volunteers have first-hand experience with homeschooling and unschooling and are excited to help!

Homeschooling Information and Resources


Homeschooling: Learning done mainly at home applying one or more various learning philosophies (Waldorf, Montessori, Charlotte Mason, Thomas Jefferson Education, Unschooling, etc.). 

Homeschooling is NOT: any schooling methods based on government funding and government standards such as public schools (even when remote-learning or crisis-schooling) and charter schools.

Unschooling: A type of homeschooling based on consent where learning is self-directed and interest-based.  Parents play supportive roles as facilitators of what their children decide to learn by offering resources and assistance as necessary.  A lifelong love of learning is what parents focus on instilling in their children.  Parents guide their children, present information, and expound on what their children are interested in.  Often, parents and children learn and explore together. There is usually not one particular set of curriculum used, although one or many can be utilized.

Unschooling is NOT: “Un-parenting,” lack of discipline, child neglect, permissive parenting, or illiteracy.

Search online to read more about these different homeschooling philosophies to find which ones appeal to you and your family the most.  Many homeschooling families will create their own mixture of styles that fit their interests, needs, and family culture best.  Even unschooling families draw inspiration and ideas from other learning philosophies!  The important thing to remember is that homeschooling should not look like public-school-at-home. 

Homeschooling does not need to be expensive to be top quality!  Between libraries and the Internet, you don’t even need to spend any money on a set of curriculum.
