A homeschool cooperative is a group of families who come together with a common goal of educating their children. Co-ops typically have a central focus such as arts, academic, or spiritual formation. In order for a co-op to be successful, all parents must take on a role whether by teaching/tutoring, administrative, clerical, field trips/meetups coordinator, etc.  In other words, ‘all hands on deck’ are needed. When everyone contributes, everyone benefits.
