Live as if you were to die tomorrow. Learn as if you were to live forever.

Welcome to LIFE of Florida!

Our secular and inclusive Florida-wide Informal Education support group acts as a resource center and clearinghouse for homeschoolers, informal learners and alternative educators interested in enriching their learning environments and maximizing their learning opportunities, as well as an advocacy center for Curiosity Driven Learning.

There is no cost to be part of LIFE of Florida -- just join in at our email discussion and announcement list, Florida LIFE, where you can download your membership card -- good for educational discounts throughout FL -- and stay informed and updated on events, issues and resources, and connect with other informal learners throughout the state.

If you're just getting started in homeschooling, be sure to check out our LIFE of Florida Quick Links, our list of Useful Docs, and our enormous collection of resources in the side columns, and visit our Inclusive Homeschool Support Groups page to find a group near you.

If you'd like your regional inclusive support group to be networked with LIFE of Florida, drop us a line with a group description, contact and other relevant information and we'll add you, free of charge, to our directory. All your group members will be automatically considered members of LIFE of Florida, and are entitled to membership cards and all the benefits we offer. Virtual school families are also welcome to enjoy our resources, support and camaraderie.

We're all inclusive and free of charge, and we're here for you!

Tapestry of Homeschool Survey - By Homeschoolers, For Homeschoolers - online through August

Learning is for Everyone developed the Tapestry of Homeschool survey in cooperation with over one hundred homeschoolers from across eight states. Since it was released in April, nearly 900 people have completed the survey, from all across the country, and a frome a few far flung global points.


The survey will remain available through August at http://learningisforev.HomeschoolTapestry.sgizmo.com


LIFE believes that getting a better picture of who homeschoolers are can help improve support and networking with the homeschool community itself, as well as better protect homeschoolers' collective rights to teach their own children.


Results of this survey will be publicly available, but no personal information will be collected, nor will any information be sold or used for commercial purposes by Learning is for Everyone, Inc.

There are 80 questions on the Tapestry of Homeschool survey, although many are optional fill-ins designed to give homeschoolers an opportunity to fully express themselves. The survey will take about 15 minutes to complete.


Hard (paper) copies of the survey are available on request for distribution at a local level by local and state homeschool groups. You may return the surveys to Learning is for Everyone for inclusion in final results, or use them to get a better understanding of homeschooling in your area.
