WhatupHomee is an online community + online class platform created by Black homeschoolers for Black homeschoolers.
We offer virtual homeschool meetups, book clubs, and other exclusive events to provide a safe space for Black homeschoolers to meet up regardless of geographical location.
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:
Christianity: Love for the Lord Jesus Christ and love for others
Community: Building relationships and cultivate partnerships
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.
Local Black churches and community centers provide homeschooling resources and support in the urban core.
Our kids have easier access to academic resources and social events that celebrate Black history and affirm Black culture.
Every Black homeschooler in every community knows where to find other Black homeschoolers locally.
Every Black family sees homeschooling as a viable option, whether they choose to do it or not.
