Adult Sponsorships for the National Home Education Conference

Hi Everyone!

The Alberta Home Education Association would like to extend an invitation to you, our Home School Leadership in Alberta and AHEA Families.  

As some of you may be aware, the annual National Home Education Conference, formerly known as the National Leadership Conference,  is being held in Edmonton this year. The dates of the conference are September 13 - 15.  You can find out more information regarding the conference here.

This Conference is a wonderful way to train and equip home educating individuals and couples for  home school leadership in our Province, as well as to connect with home school leadership from across Canada who will also be in attendance. The AHEA Board has made it a priority for Board Members to attend for many years and would love to encourage as many as possible AHEA members to attend this year, too.

AHEA has allocated funds to sponsor a number of registrations for individual AHEA members or anyone involved with home school leadership in Alberta.

Please note: transportation, accommodation, meals, and other expenses are not covered by the sponsorship.

In order to apply for the AHEA sponsorship to NHEC 2018, please download and fill out our PDF application form, and email it to Terry Yaceyko at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. by August 15th, 2018.

Youth Sponsorship for the National Home Education Conference

 Hi Everyone!

The Alberta Home Education Association would like to extend an invitation to you, our Home School Teen Leadership in Alberta.

As some of you may be aware, the annual National Home Education Conference, formerly known as the National Leadership Conference, is being held in Edmonton this year. The dates of the conference are September 13 - 15. You can find out more information regarding the conference here.

There is a teen track at this conference and AHEA would like to sponsor 2 individual registrations for the Youth Component of the Conference.

Please note: transportation, accommodation, meals, and other expenses are not covered by the sponsorship.

"iNegotiate – International Diplomacy and Human Rights

This program presents students with a hands-on opportunity to learn about the challenges faced by diplomats and foreign ambassadors at an international summit. Throughout the program, your student will have to choose between making demands and exercising diplomacy; forming alliances and burning bridges. They will have to know when to speak and when to bide their time. They will be forced to make decisions and accept responsibility for how those decisions impact the nations they represent. In the midst of a fun and engaging environment, they will get a glimpse of the weight and responsibility that comes with great power and influence. Their character will be grown, their minds will be stretched, and to be successful, they will need to act with honor, integrity, and much wisdom. We look forward to seeing how God uses this in the lives of our members, and we would like to invite you to send your student to be an ambassador at Generation Joshua's iNegotiate.

Please note, the iNegotiate program requires a certain number of participants to be successful, if not enough teen registrations are received the teen program may change."

There is more to the Annual Convention than buying!

I shared this on AHEA's Facebook Page a few days ago and thought it is a good reminder for many of us.   

"Just so you know, there is so much more to the annual AHEA Convention than the Exhibit Hall and buying. (I must say I love looking at curriculum and books, and have bought a lot through the years...) BUT the Exhibit Hall and buying isn't the most important thing for me ...

I would highly recommend checking out the sessions available (both the keynotes and other sessions) and attending as many as possible. So often, I would come to the Convention drained from months of home schooling and pouring myself into our children.... As I attended the different sessions, I "always" got recharged for another year of home educating. 

*Of course, you want to take some time to look at curriculum (and try to buy what you need at the Convention!), but renewing your vision for home schooling is what will keep you going for the long haul. Don't get distracted by shopping.... Get the encouragement you *need* this weekend (April 12 - 14, 2018) to keep home schooling your children!

Tips for Shopping at the AHEA Convention

 (Korien Sampson - AHEA's Convention Director shared the below on Facebook.  I thought I would share it here as encouragement for newcomers to the Convention.  The AHEA Convention is one of the biggest Conventions in Canada - if not the biggest!  This year it looks like there will be a record number of attendees - perhaps over 2500!  We will see.)

The AHEA Convention Exhibit Hall can be overwhelming especially to newbies. 

For those who would like some help, I offer the following:

Exhibit Hall Prescription

1st Walk About: Walk the entire hall and collect catalogues and brochures. Sit down and check out the catalogues. Make notes. Plan your next trip through the hall.

2nd Walk About: Follow your plan and take notes. Ask questions. Sit down and look over your notes. Consider how you would use products. Eliminate what won't apply to you. Consider your budget. Make more notes and make a new plan.

3rd Walk About: Follow plan and budget. Start making purchases. Participate in the BUY IT HERE program with AHEA and enter your name in the draw for $100 cash prizes, plus many more.
