Welcome to Yukon Home Education Society

Yukon's community of home educators

Who are we?

The Yukon Home Education Society is a non-profit society that represents and serves the needs of home-educating families in the Yukon. We organize activities and events for our kids, advocate for home-educators' interests, and provide community and support for home-educating families.

Should I join?

Yes, you should join if you...

  • Are currently, or will be, a home-educator in the Yukon or a nearby northern neighbour, or...
  • Are considering home education but have concerns, questions, or uncertainties to you want to talk about, or...
  • Have an interest in educational alternatives to the standard school model and want to reach out to others.

Please do not join if you are seeking to market products or services.

How do I join?

Choose a plan below to sign up. We offer a "sliding scale" of membership fees based on what you can afford in order to not exclude anyone due to financial situation. ┬áIf you cannot afford the suggested fees or prefer to pay in cash or by e-transfer, contact [email protected].

Why a membership fee?

These fees cover the digital platform (Mighty Networks) and administrative costs of running the society. Any money left after those expenses is used, along with additional fundraising proceeds, to help subsidize fee-covered activities we organize during the year. Some examples include arts classes, swimming and ski/snowboard lessons, and wildlife preserve tours.
