Advocates for Home Education in Massachusetts is a nonprofit, educational, grassroots, volunteer-run organization that is not beholden to any other organization.
AHEM aims to involve and empower Massachusetts homeschoolers in the process of maintaining the rights of individual families to homeschool, today and in the future.
We're very happy you're here checking out the AHEM website. Becoming a Friend of AHEM is an easy step to becoming proactive. Even if your involvement is simply to stay informed, that strengthens all of us.
Friends of AHEM keep abreast of legislative and other issues that affect Massachusetts homeschoolers via an announcement only email list. If you would like to become a Friend of AHEM and receive AHEM News by US mail instead of email updates, send your name and address to AHEM, PO Box 1307, Arlington, MA 02474. Donations to offset cost are appreciated!
Friends of AHEM with email get special notice of AHEM events, field trips, and get-togethers.
Any homeschooler can use a letter from their local school department as legal proof of homeschooling status. AHEM now has available"membership" cards. While they are not legal proof of homeschooling status, homeschoolers have found that many retailers do accept such cards as evidence of homeschooling, allowing homeschoolers to be eligible for educator discounts at various retail stores, most notably book stores, arts and crafts stores, and educational supply stores. Anywhere that offers discounts to teachers is probably receptive to offering the same to homeschoolers. It can't hurt to ask!
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 unless they specifically opt out, so include your email address as well if you have one, as that is our preferred form of communication.
