As parents and home educators, we spend 18 years preparing our children for life after high school. While some may go on to college, others will head to jobs, trades, the military, or volunteer work. Join us for an afternoon of virtual workshops to equip you to equip your teen to be ready for the world, no matter their post-graduation plans.


2:00 p.m. – What is Enough?, Tyler Hogan
3:00 p.m. – Preparing Your Young People to Engage the Culture, Mike Smith
4:00 p.m. – Not Necessarily College Bound, Tim Walborn


What is Enough?Tyler Hogan
Do you wrestle with guilt or anxiety that you’re not doing enough to prepare your kids for adulthood? Do you struggle with setting realistic goals or wonder if you’ll really be able to teach them everything they need to know? In this heartfelt keynote, we’ll address those concerns with simple, practical wisdom that will enable you to ditch the guilt, plan your next steps, and cultivate an “enough” identity grounded in Christ.

Preparing Your Young People to Engage the CultureMike Smith
Young people today, even homeschooled, are engaging the culture every day. The internet has thrust us all into the good, bad, and ugly of society. We must admit, earlier and earlier our children are engaging the culture. The culture today is turning against the Judeo/Christian culture many of you were raised in. Mike will address how you can prepare your children to be winners rather than losers in the cultural battle they will engage their whole lives. This is a must-watch for any parent interested in making a difference in California for good.

Not Necessarily College BoundTim Walborn
Society places great emphasis on attending college after graduation. But is this the best option for every student? During this workshop, Tim will explore why college is not for everyone and what some of the alternative options are for post-graduation plans.
