There are many classes and activities offered to homelearners, during school hours, throughout the Lower Mainland.
If you cannot find the type of class you would like, you may be able to start one yourself. Many of the programs currently available were originally organized by a member of the homelearning community. It might just be a matter of contacting a local community centre and asking if they could offer a certain program during the day. Or, if you are willing to put the work in, it is possible to organize a program and run it yourself. There are many public and private venues which rent out space, and you can find and hire instructors and mentors yourself (if you need them).
Not everything going on for homelearners is listed here. Just what I come across. There are groups that organize lots of activities and are very focused on a specific location in the lower mainland. Make sure you connect with all the groups in your area by joining every group that applies to you.
The programs listed here are diverse: There are programs run by community centres, private organizations, and homelearners themselves. There are structured classes which require registration, and informal drop-ins which allow homelearners and parents a chance to hang out, or do activities together. The listings are organized by category, with cities and ages listed with each activity:
Note: We do not necessarily endorse the programs listed. Our aim is to provide a listing of as many programs as possible, to give local homelearners a central place to find activities and browse through what is available. This is not a comprehensive list; if you know of something we have missed, please email us the information so we can include it. We do not charge anything to list activities.
