Homeschooled students age 12-18 are invited to participate in the 2017 AFHE Convention Teen Program. Attendance is limited to the first 500 teens that register.

Visit the Convention REGISTRATION page for more information and to register your family before June 16. At-the-door registrations for the Teen Program will be accepted provided space is available.

Teens participating in the Teen Program must register with their parents for the convention or have another adult that will be on-site during the convention who will be responsible for each teen. The Phoenix Convention Center is a public building in Downtown Phoenix. Parents or a designated adult are responsible for the well-being and safety of their children and teens during the convention, not the AFHE Board of Directors, Convention Committee, convention volunteers, teen program presenters.

NOTE:Teen Program participants do not need to pay the $10 child/teen admission fee on top of their $20 registration.


Although we are not staffed to assist students who need special assistance, we would invite a parent, older sibling, or aide to attend the teen program with a student who needs assistance. Please email us at to discuss any special circumstances that may impact a student's ability to participate in the teen program. The teen program is primarily lecture style.


$20 per student includes this two-day program along with admission to any of the workshops during the convention and admission to the exhibit hall.


Students registered for the Teen Program will have special name badges that must be worn at all times, and may not be shared or transferred to others.



Details about the 2017 Teen Program at the AFHE Convention will be posted in January.
