The Victoria Home Learners’ Network Association (VHLN) is a non-profit society created to support home learning families in the Greater Victoria area. Our membership is comprised of families who follow diverse home learning paths – from traditional approaches to home schooling to “radical” unschooling to everything in between.
Home Learning Support
Members provide support to one another through a Hotline (a members-only Yahoo group where individuals post events and activities relevant to the home learning community), a monthly SOS (Support or Socializing) gathering for the parents of home learners, large group events held a few times a year, a website, a discount card for several vendors in the Victoria area, and a membership directory for those who choose to be a part of it.
VHLN members organize several home learning events over the year. In addition to the monthly SOS meetings for parents, members can attend:

– “Register or Enroll” Information Meeting (September)
– The Science Celebration (a non-competitive Science &
– The May Day Potluck and Celebration
– Events featuring guest speakers
