Group Description


Sankofa is a community for homeschooling families of the African Diaspora who want to grow, learn, and build together. We are dedicated to creating a rich, supportive homeschool village through a combination of social outlets, field trips, and the sharing of resources.

We are a local support group for the Metro D.C. area. Sankofa has members in DC, Maryland, Virginia, and as far north as Baltimore. We are religiously diverse and our members use a variety of homeschooling methods.

Why join Sankofa? Homeschoolers of the African Diaspora need a consistent reference group. Many times our children take classes and meet children, only to never see them again. Often when the season changes, our homeschool activities or schedule may change. Through regular participation within the Sankofa Community, children and homeschooling families can look forward to building relationships with one another, on a consistent basis, no matter their home school path.

Sankofa uses our Yahoo Group listserv as our on-line base of operation, but in most cases, the true power of Sankofa is found in person, in small groups, meeting in each other's homes or sharing resources in a variety of areas.

There are many different types of homeschooling groups. Some groups focus solely on academics, some are divided by age groups, while others are little more than e-mail lists that lack the strong bonds of a sustained community, where parents and children really get to know one another and build real friendships. Sankofa believes that we combine the best of both worlds for families and children of all ages. We hope that through participation in the Sankofa Homeschool Community, our families will build connections that will last a lifetime.

IMPORTANT - You should receive a membership form automatically. If not, please contact the owner as you will be UNABLE to join the group until it is completed.
