Grassroots is open to anyone with an interest in homeschooling. Based in Matteson, Illinois, we are a non-denominational, non-sectarian, registered non-profit organization. Our purpose is to support and nurture homeschooling families. We provide a social network of growth and camaraderie as well as practical information to our community members and all others who are either actively involved in homeschooling or considering embarking on the homeschooling adventure.

We are a diverse group with members spread across the entire Chicago Southland region. Participants range in age from pre-K all the way up through high school, and we even have a few baby brothers and sisters who join in the fun. Grassroots is a family-friendly organization.

  1. Hello! My 11 year old son will begin homeschooling for 6th grade. I was very interested in your program and was wondering if you had summer sessions?

    • Hi Amy! At this point, there are no summer sessions that I am aware of; however, I will check with the organizers to confirm that. I will respond further tomorrow, after I have a chance to speak to one of the wonderful ladies. Thank you for your interest, and we look forward to seeing you and your son in September. :-) Also, you can follow us by entering your email on the right side of the page, so you receive an email whenever we add new items to the page.


    • Amy,

      I wanted to let you know our sessions are all year long. What we do June til August is park days anyone can set up and let the group know, then hopefully some of the families will come. I know there are families with children in the age group you are talking about.
