Dear Community Member:

Black Homeschoolers of Central Florida, Inc., and Brilliant Minds 4-H Club would like to invite you to take part in our upcoming Community EXPO as we celebrate our decision to homeschool our children.

Event Date: Thursday, January 24th, 2019

Location: The Center at Deltona

1640 Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Blvd. Deltona, FL 32725

Event Hours: 10 AM- 2 PM

We have been given an amazing opportunity to choose homeschooling for our children. Did you know that nationwide there are close to 2 million homeschoolers, with nearly 100,000 of them right here in Florida? As part of our ongoing efforts to support homeschooling families in the Greater Central Florida area we feel it is the perfect time to bring our community partners, our homeschooling families, and our young entrepreneurs together under one roof! Come on out as businesses and organizations in the community want to connect with you!!

When we ask the question, "Are you happy about your decision to homeschool?", we usually get a resounding YES!! 

We wanted to celebrate that decision by bringing together homeschoolers and businesses and organizations within the community. We wanted to highlight Youth Entrepreneurs and have workshops to help the youth and their parents on their homeschooling journey.

We are happy to join 21,000 other groups celebrating National School Choice Week in January by hosting Community EXPO 2019 along with Brilliant Minds 4-H Club! NSCW has quickly become the world’s largest education related public awareness effort and they have chosen OUR EVENT to spotlight!! Attendees will enjoy complimentary yellow NSCW scarves that can be worn proudly as you celebrate your homeschooling choice along with us.

We have some wonderful things in store for you at this FREE event. Enjoy FREE Homeschool Workshops, See and Support Youth Entrepreneur businesses, Meet College and University Reps, Connect with Community Businesses & Organizations, Enjoy Children's Activities, and Meet our Community Partners.
