TheDandelionProject.us is an intentional community around self-directed education, child-led learning, conscious + respectful parenting, transformation + liberation, and community care.
Let’s build something beautiful together!
Our work is rooted in the belief that people learn best when they are free to live self-chosen, passion-driven lives. Our experience shows us that self-directed learning thrives within a nurturing community of passionate people. TheDandelionProject.us creates community-driven access to a wide range of support and services for families of self-directing young people--made by and for the community.

Self-Directed Education Through:
PA Homeschool + Unschool Support Membership
[September 2021-June 2022]
Families can access year-round support from experienced educators, homeschool evaluators, and community members leading SDE spaces. This is a place for us to come together and do the work together around deschooling, healing and growing as parents, and showing up as conscious partners in our young peoples' lives. We will also center community growing experiences around racial equity and inclusion, environmental stewardship, and intentional community-building.
We hope you'll grow with us.
We share a simplified interpretation of PA homeschool requirements through an unschooling lens. Free info sessions + access to end-of-year evaluations with passionate, unschooling PA certified evaluators.

Learning opportunities where people of all ages can dive into some stuff together. Offerings are community-driven and available when community members have something to share. Do you have an idea for an offering?
