HELP WANTED: You can help IHEN Help Hoosiers Homeschool

Positions: Volunteer | Paid | Commissioned


Volunteer Opportunities

IndianaHomeschoolers List Subscribers
IHEN was founded on the volunteers who subscribed to the IndianaHomeschoolers e-list and jumped right in and helped other parents who wanted to learn more about homeschooling. If nothing else, subscribing to IndianaHomeschoolers and sharing your advice and ideas with others will contribute mightly.

IHEN County Contacts
One of our goals – in fact it's our motto – is to Help Hoosiers Homeschool. IHEN's Statewide Support and Resource Directory lists all kinds of homeschooling resources by county. In each county, we would like to have an IHEN County Contact volunteer.

If you have been homeschooling for a few years, and have a sympathetic ear and know the 'lay of the land' in your county, write to Carol Pozos, our County Contact Program Director, and she'll fill you in on what it takes to be an IHEN County Contact.

Commissioned Positions

Resource Directory Ad Sales
We are developing a program where organizations, businesses and others interested in reaching the homeschooling community can do so, by helping the Indiana Home Educators' Network become self supporting. Regional advertising sales positions within the IHEN Statewide Support and Resource Directory will be opening up soon. Current IHEN County Contacts will be the first in line for their county and regions. If you are interested in this position, contact Carol Pozos about becoming an IHEN County Contact.




We need your help to keep IHEN going and growing. Without Hooosier Homeschoolers, IHEN is nothing. We can't do it alone.

The Indiana Code
Now in English! :-)

We took a crack at explaining the Indiana education code in words we can understand. It's not legal advice, but it's the best we can do. Read IHEN's Indiana Legal Code Document. We also added a new commentary on The Reporting Enrollment Issue. Both are available now on
