Don’t try to homeschool alone. Just as God told us to fellowship with one another to strengthen our faith, we should fellowship with other like-minded homeschoolers to sustain our commitment to our children’s education. Get connected with other homeschoolers for a great source of information, encouragement and help as you begin homeschooling.

Find a Support Group
You can use the OCEANetwork system to find a support group in your area, but we encourage you first to look for other homeschoolers in your church. The church, being your source of spiritual encouragement, is also the best source of “moral support” for your family. If your church does not share your commitment to home education, there are other support groups and associations that provide help, social opportunities, and encouragement.

Volunteers make OCEANetwork WORK!
Some of our volunteers are lobbyists and many hours in Salem each session. Some stuff envelops once a month. Some push a broom and clean up after the annual conference. Hundreds pray for OCEANetwork and its volunteers. Others take their vacation time to lobby in Washington, D.C., on home education and family issues. Some write articles for the newsletters. Still others help with Home Education Week every May. Find out how to support OCEANetwork as a volunteer!
