Here are a few of our favorite resources for supporting a family on the move:
Our favorite place to connect with other worldschooling families is on Facebook. Our go-to group is called Worldschoolers and it’s a great place to start. Other great groups include Families on the Move and Homeschool Travel Connect. They are all closed groups, so just read the requirements and request to join.
