"This workshop contained a wealth of information. The holistic approach is a game changer, and I truly appreciated the resources provided to supplement the already jam packed lessons. I walked away from the workshop with more confidence in my role as a homeschooling mama, better understanding of how to effectively communicate with my children, and an awesome system of evaluation for our homeschool program. I am so thankful to BHCFL for providing us with this wonderful opportunity.
"Thank you BHCFL for providing this wonderful resource for parent educators. Often, we are so focused on making sure that our children have the support they need that we neglect connecting to sources of support for ourselves. This workshop has been just that for me……I feel equipped to move forward on our homeschool journey, with useful tools to help along the way. Most importantly, I feel encouraged and ready to be an encouragement to my children as they learn and grow."
"I really appreciated this opportunity to take a deep dive into creating a more supportive homeschool environment. It allowed time for self reflection and to gather wisdom from the other participants. It was amazing to have a sense of community and to be transparent with my concerns in a safe space."
I have noticed members of this organization participating in community service a few times now and I’d just like to commend them on their attention to detail and how they incorporate the children in the service. Everyone has a role and is helping in their own capacity. The kids seem eager to help and worked well together. Great work all around!
I have been waiting to join the since my child was 3 years ago. We are so excited that this year we are able to do so.
Our family is new to Black Homeschoolers of Central Florida this school year and already we feel that they have offered us valuable support on our homeschooling journey. We have been welcomed warmly and provided with resources and hands-on learning opportunities that help to greatly enhance our children's educational experience. BHCFL also offers parental support which is an integral part of the success of homeschooling families. We look forward to our family's continued involvement with Black Homeschoolers of Central Florida and encourage others who would benefit from their support to connect with them as well!
BHCFL is a very active and engaging community. My family and I are truly thankful to have found such an amazing group to do life with. With all of the opportunities to connect our children and ourselves to learn and grow together, it’s more than I could have ever imagined. We are overjoyed we found our tribe!
Hard work and dedication by the organization’s leader and volunteers have opened up opportunities for young people throughout the region!
This is a wonderful organization that supports families as they guide their children along their educational journey.
My experience with the Black Homeschoolers of Central Florida has been great. The resources they have provided my sons have been phenomenal. There are so many opportunities given to our children (Science club, Youth Toastmasters, and more). I would encourage anyone to look into them and sign up when enrollment opens. It has far exceeded my expectations and I am grateful for them on my homeschool journey.
I have been looking for a group that I can connect with and through BHCFl I have found that. Its diverse and all walks of faith are welcomed. Mrs. Denning has been a true inspiration. She is always looking for ways to keep us engaged and always learning new things. Most people don't see the behind the scenes of an organization . I get a glimpse of it and I proud of what Mrs. Denning has accomplished for BHCFL. We are out there and getting connected with the community and thats where it really counts. We want to leave a legacy for our kids and BHCFL is leading the way.
Community is essential. Our family has been blessed by both the cultural and educational experiences provided by Black Homeschoolers of Central Florida. We look forward to monthly gatherings and insightful meeting opportunities.
It has been a great experience meeting new people, taking my kids to visit different places and learning so much from other about homeschool. I am encouraged that bhcfl was started because I believe it will help me tremendously on my homeschooling journey
I was looking for a black homeschool group that could assist me with homeschooling 3 years ago, and this Tribe was the only one i found. I am so blessed that i could find like minded people of color that i could relate too. My child loves the interaction with other children that look like her in a loving and accepting manner ALL the time.
I have enjoyed being a part of this village. We really pull together for everyone and empower each other. Field trips are fantastic , very educational. We do so many things for the community. I am grateful for our community and lookin g forward in growing and connecting with more of our village.
This is the most welcoming village I've encountered in a very long time. My kids are flourishing in an environment where their culture and history is celebrated and explored!
We have been members of BHCFL for a few years and we are very grateful for this organization. Without them, homeschooling and socialization would of been hard. We are very grateful for finding an organization that encourage education, self love, and growth for our family.
This group is treasure for homeschoolers in central Florida! Tons of great activities and opportunities!
I'm so glad to have found this organization. My family has been apart of this village of amazing people for 4 yrs now. My children have met friends and there's so many resources available.
I joined black homeschoolers when my son was just shy of two years old. I had an interest in homeschooling my son but didn't have the resources. It was also important that I be apart of a community that valued the same fundamental approach on how I planned to educate my children. My son loves interacting with his friends that he's now known for three years and I have made lasting connections with the parent's in this group. I call them my village because everyone is always supportive and willing to offer guidance when needed. My son is starting kindergarten this upcoming school year and I feel prepared to start this journey knowing that I have back up should I require help through this group. I highly recommend this group to any family who is looking teach their brown children about their afrikan culture, experience culturally diverse field trips and build a community.
Amazing group of people. Both my kids and I love hanging out with them and attending events.
This is our first year homeschooling and we were looking for a group that our children could be active with. We have found BHCFL to be extremely well organized and provide more than enough learning and social opportunities for our children. We were also able to rent curriculum from the group's library and that was such a big help for us as first year homeschoolers. Looking forward to the next 15+years of homeschooling our children:)
Back when I homeschooled my daughters, i was applauded for doing so in my community, but many didn't have the confidence to do so. Now I'm helping my daughters homeschool their children and immediately recognized the benefit of an active, vibrant group such as BHCFL which encourages, advances and celebrates black homeschools. And, in some instances, they are the only one providing that support. Be ready to participate, learn and grow with this organization!! Your students will thank you.
We love this group! Black Homeschoolers of Central Florida was a lifeline when we were new to the state and trying to figure out how to engage with local homeschool communities. The group provides educational, service, and social opportunities for its members and always seeks to engage with the larger Central Florida community. My kids love the field trips they have taken and the friends they have made. We are all so grateful for this wonderful group!
We are so grateful to be a part of the BHCFL family! We've been involved since our daughter was two years old and I know being in this group is a major factor contributing to us thriving in these homeschooling streets :-) I was looking for community, access to a wealth of information resources, and a safe and welcoming place where my family would feel like we belong. My family found all of that and so much more!!! Many thanks to BHCFL for holding this space for families like mine.
BHCFL is a wonderful asset to my family, without their assistance we would not have been able to successfully homeschool our children. The board members use their personal experiences to help guide our family and others to all the information that we need to be able to help our children make the most of their education. I wouldn't trade our connections and friendships made within this group for anything!
Black Homeschoolers of Central Florida is a great resource for homeschoolers!
My family is so grateful for BHCF. We always knew we would homeschool but didn't have much direction. We was introduced to BHCF in 2016 through a friend and it's been a huge part of our family ever since. From the community work to weekly field trips, BHCF has given me the confidence I needed to homeschool and my son a community to trust. I'm grateful to be around other families of color that cares about their children's education and made the decision to homeschool.
This group has been a welcoming home for us at various stages of our homeschool journey. We were unable to find a similar support community in the area so we are so thankful to have found BHCF. We have participated in several of the group activities and my children have always enjoyed learning with the group.
This charity has helped educate me about the things available to me for my family. Homeschooling and providing a quality education is difficult. They provide information, options, and events curtailed to my family. I am so thankful for them!
