PHONE CALLS
We take community phone calls all day on a variety of topics.

The vast majority of the calls we take are parents who say they want to homeschool, but once we explain what homeschooling is, they quickly realize this isn’t what they want to do. At that point we shift the conversation to online public charter schools.

Sometimes people call asking about simple things: educational plans, can homeschooled kids play on school sports teams, etc.

Sometimes there are problems and we handle them too! Homeschooled kid not being allowed to take classes at local public school, army recruiter not knowledgeable about accepting homeschooled students…we hear it all!

So…call us! (702) 748-7473

COMMUNITY ACTIVISM WORKSHOPS
We believe many people want to make a difference and just don’t know how or where to start. Often it becomes personal, then that desire to affect change grows and grows.

This 4 part workshop series aimed at educating parents (anyone, really!) on how to be active in the community, teaches everything from navigating the Bill Tracking System, to how laws are made, to how to testify, and even how to create your own non-profit. Additionally, we’ve worked in a field trip so participants can be guided through their first time at a public meeting. This workshop information can cross issues and be used for any type of advocacy.

Workshop presenter: Elissa Wahl- In this workshop series I am leaning heavily on my 15 years of volunteer work geared towards educational options. I have founded 2 non -profits, written both of their IRS tax exemption documents (1 a 501c4, 1 a 501c3), sat on various state level boards (Homeschool Advisory Board – to the SBOE) and more recently the State Public Charter School Authority Board. I’ve written, lobbied for, and won excellent homeschooling laws for the state of NV. And, at the core of it, I’m just a mom. I’m self taught and I can teach other parents how to be as effective as I’ve been!
