Do you seek a safe, trusting, collaborative space for inspiration and helping others? The Parent Forum is a place to meet with other parents educating their children at home and co-learning. There are no set topics and no one is in charge. Gather together to be honest, de-stress, and support each other.
The core values of Co-Learn Club's Parent Forum are:
Genuine interest in others
Desire to help and inspire
Listen to understand
Willing to be open, honest and vulnerable
Tolerance for ambiguity
Length & Duration: 60-minute live, virtual meetings once a week for 4 weeks.
Spend one hour a week with a collaborative group of other parents where "all are teachers and all are learners."
Your facilitator is Michelle Spencer, Co-founder of Co-Learn Club. Her purpose in this Forum is to operate the Zoom video platform and support the group. She'll kick off each session with a quick reminder of the Core Values, and then get out of the way. She is not in charge and does not set the agenda.
Co-Learn Club is not really sure if parents want such a loose, collective, and undefined gathering. This will be our first offering of a Parent Forum, and for that reason we are waiving the registration fee.
We hope you will join us on this journey of discovery and co-learning.
