About Us

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 special events provide opportunities for black homeschoolers to meet up with each other regardless of geographical location. 

The WhatupHomee Collaborative, also known as The Collabo, is our online class platform that offers 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 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

Vision

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.
