FAMILY FOUNDATIONS PARENT CLASS
We are seeking to support and build up our parents in their role as parent mentors. We want to fill your bucket, inspire you, and give you support!
Family Foundations is a two-pronged project to strengthen your homes and help the parent mentors in our community to grow in their application of leadership education principles in their homes.
The first prong is facilitated by trained mentors who are prepared to lead other parents through powerful learning environments such as colloquia, simulations, and lectures. Each month has a different area of focus such as Vision, Mission, Abilities, Skills and Knowledge which are augmented by an online curriculum (the second prong) which is delivered to a parent’s email inbox each week so they can go deeper and have a Socratic experience. These lessons are part of the Family Foundation membership which includes tools for enhancing your home schooling and can be found at www.libercommunities.com
FAMILY FOUNDATIONS SCHOLAR PROJECT FOR ADULTS
Family Foundations Parent Mentor Class – Held weekly at the Polar Star building, the Family Foundation course provides our parent mentors the opportunity to have discussions of classic books, learn powerful principles in a lecture environment, and participate in simulations.
Family Foundations Online Membership ($110; paid up front to LEMI at www.libercommunities.com) – helps the new and veteran homeschooler apply leadership education principles in their own home. These are weekly, self-paced lessons that combine video learning with application using the Socratic method. As you answer the questions online you are creating a digital record of your growth. It is a membership-based experience that comes with many LEMI resources such as an online community, webinars, Q&A sessions, and recorded conference calls.
Parents who purchase the online membership from LEMI will receive a $30 stipend the first semester from Polar Star if you take the family foundations class. If you sign up for second semester of Family Foundations at Polar Star you will get an additional $30 stipend from Polar Star to offset the cost of this annual membership fee and the in-person class. We are investing in our parents!
