National Homeschool Day speakers are definitely kid-friendly! We understand that young ones may not be able to sit through an entire 45-minute session, but teens might enjoy the topics. At current, we have some locations who have chosen to only invite parents, while others are inviting the entire family but providing childcare, and still others are splitting the day into morning sessions and afternoon sessions, and grouping family-themes and parent-themes accordingly.

You are free to set your own local schedule as each talk is prerecorded and you will be able to stream each session on-demand. If you need assistance, we invite you to call us at Home Office: 407-512-0638 or e-mail us: firstname.lastname@example.org, so that we can help you know how to best host your local National Homeschool Gathering.
What will my local event schedule look like on February 23?
On average, National Homeschool Day will last for approximately seven hours. This time includes streaming each talk (each are about 45-minutes in length), as well as providing a time (we suggest 15 minutes) for fellowship and discussion in between each session, plus a half hour break for lunch. As all sessions are pre-recorded, you can stream on-demand throughout February 23 on your own schedule.
