WhatupHomee is an online community + online class platform created by Black homeschoolers for Black homeschoolers.
Our virtual homeschool meetups, book clubs, anime club, and other exclusive events provide opportunities for Black homeschoolers to meet up with each other in safe spaces regardless of geographical location.
The WhatupHomee Collaborative (The Collabo) is our online class platform that offers culturally relevant LIVE online classes for kids.
Mission and Values
Our mission is to connect, support, and promote the local and national Black homeschool community, and to increase diversity, equity, and belonging within the broader homeschool community.
These core values inform what we do and how we do:
Community: Building relationships and working together
Connection: (relational) person to person, (academically) subject to subject
Collaboration: Leverage our collective knowledge and experience
Communication: Open, honest, and respectful
Creativity: innovative ideas, outside the box thinking
Black Culture: find every opportunity to affirm the cultural contributions of Black people
Black History: find every opportunity to celebrate the historical contributions of Black people
To normalize homeschooling in the Black community and create a world:
Where Black homeschooling families are no longer seen as outliers.
Where local Black churches and community centers provide homeschooling resources and support in the urban core.
Where our kids have easier access to academic resources and social events that celebrate Black history and affirm Black culture.
Where every Black homeschooler in every community knows where to find other Black homeschoolers locally.
Where every Black family sees homeschooling as a viable option, whether they choose to do it or not.
