Who Are We?
Advocates for Home Education in Massachusetts (AHEM) is a nonprofit, independent, grassroots, volunteer-run, educational organization that gathers and disseminates information about homeschooling in Massachusetts through education, advocacy, and events. We believe that informed and active homeschoolers are their own best advocates in maintaining the right to independently homeschool. We welcome and value the participation of anyone interested in homeschooling in Massachusetts. We do not discriminate based on age, race, family status, religious belief, or sexual orientation.
If you would like an AHEM membership card, please send a stamped, self-addressed envelope to AHEM, PO Box 1307, Arlington, MA 02474. Indicate "membership card" on the envelope, and allow 4-6 weeks for delivery. People requesting cards will be added to the Friends of AHEM list, so please include your email address as well if you have one, as that is our preferred form of communication.
Why donate to us? We understand that you work hard for your money and that you cannot give to every organization that you come across. Please consider:
Your donation keeps this organization up and running. Like every other nonprofit organization, we have costs which include maintaining our website, our PO box, photo-copying, postage, etc.
Your donation goes farther. We understand that you want as much of your donation as possible to go towards the mission of Advocates for Home Education in Massachusetts, Inc. For example, all of our workers are volunteers who donate their time and energy and do so without compensation. When we do spend money, we do our best to make sure that we have found the most efficient and effective option that uses the least amount of resources.
