Northside Unschoolers Group (NUG)

We are the Northside Unschoolers Group



 We provide information, support and encouragement to Chicago area families with children ages 0 to 18 who unschool or are interested in unschooling.  Unschooling is child-led or child initiated learning. We also provide a variety of activities, classes and events to all interested homeschoolers.

How NUG works in a nutshell:

We are a non-directed support group, which means that there are no official leaders, just people interested in offering their energy and ideas to the community. All activities are offered and organized by individuals, based on their interests and needs. For example, if someone wants to organize a field trip, she/he determines when it will happen, where it will take place, what age groups can participate, how much it will cost, etc… that information is then posted to the website, and people can choose to participate or not.

If the thought of diving into a new crowd seems intimidating, Read this article about strategies for “breaking in” to an existing homeschooling group.
