NON-HOMESCHOOLING GRANDPARENTS

We value the importance of grandparents in the homeschooling process and welcome grandparents at the AFHE Convention! Non-homeschooling grandparents are always free if they attend with their adult child who is registered for the Convention.

Grandparents who are still homeschooling one or more of their own children must register separately and pay the admission fee.

CHILDREN AND TEENS

We love children and you are welcome to bring your child/children with you, if desired. This conference is geared for parent / teacher enrichment and learning, however, and space is limited in workshop rooms. We encourage you to make childcare arrangements, if possible.

Teens and children (age 3 and up) will be charged an admission fee of $10 each. Infants (age 2 and under) are admitted free. A curtained mothers’ area will be available in the exhibit hall for nursing/feeding infants. Children under age 12 must remain with an adult at all times.

CHRISTIAN TEEN PROGRAM
Homeschooled students ages 12-18 are invited to participate in the 2019 AFHE Convention Teen Program. Space is limited. This special two-day program is educational, and fun! The Teen Program registration fee includes admission to all of the Convention.

HOMESCHOOL GRADUATES
Unmarried homeschooled graduates that are attending college or still living at home may register for the convention at the $10 youth rate if they register with their parents. Married graduates or those living on their own must register separately and pay the adult admission fee.

NOTE: If a workshop room is full, we ask you to have your younger child sit on your lap, if possible. Since the convention is geared toward parent education and equipping, we want as many adults as possible to have the opportunity to sit in on a workshop. If your child is fussy/noisy, please step out of the workshop with them until they quiet. While we are all parents and appreciate that children make noise, we want to respect that many attendees have made childcare arrangements so they can get the most out of the weekend. In addition, the workshops are being recorded and we want to minimize noise in the rooms to get the best quality recordings.  

FIRST-TIME ATTENDEES

AFHE offers a special discount rate to first-time attendees. This offer is for adults who have never before registered for the AFHE Convention. Request your coupon code through the online form on the First-Time Attendees page.

NON-HOMESCHOOLING PASTORS

As a means to share the vision of home education and to build strong relationships with Christian churches, we invite non-homeschooling pastors of Arizona churches to attend the convention free of charge. This offer is extended to pastors who do not teach their own children at home currently, but are interested in learning more about homeschooling.

Please have your pastor contact us at registration@afhe.org to receive registration instructions.

Pastors who are homeschooling one or more of their children must register as a regular attendee and pay the admission fee.

VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITIES

The AFHE Convention is run almost entirely by volunteers. Volunteers are an integral part of the success of the annual Arizona Home Education Convention hosted by AFHE. Our volunteer workers help keep costs to a minimum while continuing to provide an excellent conference. We are thankful to each and every volunteer who helps to make this event a success!

Volunteers who serve 5 or more hours* during the convention can earn free admission. Those interested in volunteering will complete an online application. Once scheduled, you will receive a special registration link. *Married couples can split the hours, but must work a minimum of 6 hours.

The opportunity to volunteer is a benefit of membership. Current AFHE Membership expiring August 1, 2019 or later is required.

PHOTOGRAPHY/VIDEO USAGE

Photographs or video taken at this event may be published in the AFHE magazine, on the AFHE website, on AFHE social media pages, or in other AFHE publications. AFHE does not provide compensation or royalties in conjunction with publication or use of these materials. Any photographs, video, or audio used by AFHE from this event will be used with the purpose of celebrating and promoting homeschooling in Arizona.

STROLLER PARKING & BOOK CHECK

We are pleased to announce that we will provide a book check just inside the exhibit hall to the right next to the AFHE Mentoring Moms Booth. You’ll be able to leave your purchases and strollers for a small fee with our book check team. Claim numbers will be issued to allow you to pick up your items or add to your pile.

Due to space limitations and hazards due to blocked aisles, strollers will only be permitted in workshop rooms in the open spaces in the back row. You may park your strollers and roller bags in the book check area for a small fee. Strollers and roller bags are fine in the ballroom and in the exhibit hall.

CONTINUING EDUCATION FORMS

AFHE will provide a Continuing Education form for foster parents, childcare workers, and others who need to accrue professional development hours. If you need a form, please ask at the registration counter. An AFHE representative will sign the form and the attendee will write in the workshops he/she attended along with the presenters’ names. AFHE does not have information about which sessions qualify for hours needed for the recipient.

ASL INTERPRETER

AFHE will secure the services of an ASL interpreter for both keynote sessions as well as workshop sessions taking place in the South Ballroom. While we cannot guarantee we will be able to provide this service every year, we are thankful for the opportunity to do so again in 2019. A number of seats will be reserved at the front in the ballroom for deaf and hard of hearing.

Thank You, Sponsors!

We are grateful for the companies, colleges, and organizations that partner with us as sponsors at the AFHE Convention! Their presence and participation helps us to provide a quality event while keeping registration fees as affordable as possible for our attendees. Be sure to stop by their booths and visit their websites and thank them for their support of homeschooling in Arizona!
