Sports through city leagues, private schools, and homeschool organizations are very popular among homeschool students. Co-ops are when groups of students get together and learn about a subject as a group. When the kids are younger, mothers take turns instructing. When the kids are in High School, a teacher is sometimes hired or the kids will take turns instructing on parts of the subject. Almost every homeschooled child has been some type of scout group. I would have to say that co-ops are the way to go! You get to learn about a topic with friends that are as excited about it as you are.

This question at first surprised me. But after thinking it through I realized why. In the world of homeschooling, extracurricular activities are a way of life. That is what really makes homeschooling, homeschooling. In addition to academics, we homeschoolers have the opportunity to, day in and day out, participate in tons of extracurricular activities. From field trips to our local landfill, to homeschool camp-outs on our local mountain, everyday is a learning opportunity. However, I will attempt to summarize some of the main programs we participate in.

First: 4-H One of the main programs I as a homeschooler and many other homeschoolers I know participate in, is 4-H. This program is absolutely incredible. Although agriculture is what comes to most peoples minds when they hear 4-H, this program is actually much more diverse and helps immense young people (like myself) in exiting and educational ... For example: this year I had the opportunity to, serve meals to men at our local Rescue Mission, lead a 4-H electricity class, and travel to Wilmington for NC 4-H Electric Congress

Second: Our Local Homeschool Co-op. Once a week over 100 homeschoolers gather to participate in either educational classes or athletic activities. From launching homemade rockets to playing flag football this is a much anticipated activity.

Third: Every Day Life. I know this may be hard to understand, but as i previously mentioned, homeschoolers strive to make "life" a learning experience, In anything and everything. I personally of benefited from helping out in the afternoons at my dad's business, learning about electricity and plumbing through house projects, and helping to build a barn.

I have listed above some of the most popular extracurricular activities, but they are also my favorite, and I would recommend participation to almost anyone!

The three most popular extracurricular activities at my Homeschool Support Program are sports, honor society, and band. I would recommend sports and honor soceity! Sports help you physically and they also give you the chance to understand the true value of teamwork. Honor society gives you wonderful opportunities to volunteer in your community, and learn valuable leadership skills.

We are not a part of the Homeschool Support Program. We are a part of the New York State Loving Education at Home support group and through that participate in a local co-op where we have been able to participate in chemistry, Spanish and art.

Basketball for girls and boys, Football, and Speech and Debate in association with NCFCA. I would recommend that they add a theater program and a baseball team.
