Why volunteer?

With VHE, you can help the homeschool community in a big way! All of the work at VHE is done by volunteers—busy families just like yours who see a need and get involved! VHE volunteers are an integral part of making a difference for homeschoolers in California’s Central Valley and surrounding communities. We have attendees from all over California as well as neighboring states.

We need your help to effectively support homeschoolers and let others know about the wonderful world of homeschooling! To keep a homeschool convention of this size running smoothly requires a huge amount of volunteers. Each year we need about 100 volunteers to cover various shifts on the Friday and Saturday of the convention.

Simply fill out the VHE volunteer form below, and our volunteer coordinator will contact you with more information. Take some time out of your busy schedule to volunteer, and be blessed in the process!
