Community Enrichment

Community Enrichment Programs are once to several-times-a-week programs that can be specifically for homeschoolers or can incorporate both homeschoolers and others in the community. These programs can be secular or religious and generally have a more select focus on one type of subject, such as a survival skills program, 4-H, Trail Life, and more. The teachers are members of the community who either volunteer or incorporate them into their business model. Making them different from a class or a camp, these enrichment programs usually last a full school year.
