Community Guidelines & Safe Space Statement

It is important to us that we create and maintain a community that is safe, welcoming, and respectful to all. As unschoolers, we know that there is no value in creating rules for the sake of control, discipline, or to maintain hierarchical structures. This is why we have carefully crafted community guidelines that we hope every member of our community can see the value in and agree to follow.

 

By registering for NEUC, you will be agreeing to conduct yourself in accordance with these guidelines, and help young members of your family to do the same, so please read the guidelines carefully.

 

If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to contact conference organizer Emmett directly: emmettdupont@gmail.com.

 

We believe that unschooling is about joyful self-expression, so racism, sexism, transphobia, ableism, sexual harassment or discrimination of any kind is not welcome in this space. NEUC takes a strong stance on these issues, and we expect other conference-goers to do the same. If issues arise, please find a conference organizer, and we will help work through the situation. Specifically, taking a stance against transphobia in the unschooling community means not promoting “unschooling” resources that also promote transphobia, and not inviting conference presenters who support such resources. If you have questions about this policy, please contact: emmettdupont@gmail.com. If you feel that you are lacking knowledge on any of these issues, NEUC will be hosting programming discussing these topics, and you are welcome to attend!

 

Our goal is for everyone of all ages to follow these agreements, so please make sure they are communicated to every member of your family, and make sure every member of your family has the support they need to follow these agreements to make sure that NEUC is a safe, enjoyable, joyful conference for everyone! Thank you for joining us in our commitment to making our second home better and better every year!
