Our youth conference is the highlight of the year for many attendees.  Join our fantastic youth in an accepting, uplifting and fun atmosphere.  Revel in being surrounded by over 300 other youth who are homeschooled and LDS just like you.

A Light Unto My Path

LDSHE Home Education Conference West

Last year's inaugural conference in the west was a huge success!  So we're coming back...with even more!  We've extended the conference to three full days.  LDSHE is unique in that it is not tied to a specific curriculum or method, but gives you the chance to hear from speakers all across the spectrum.

Stand Out Stand Tall

LDSHE Youth Education Conference West

Finally LDS homeschooled youth in the west can discover what LDS homeschooled youth in the east have known for a decade: that the LDSHE youth conference is THE place to be! Bring your friends and prepare to meet many new friends.

Jamie York

Jamie York, Waldorf teacher and self-proclaimed "math missionary" will speak at the LDSHE West Home Education Conference about creating math lessons, overcoming math traumaan imaginative approach to geometry, and more! We're thrilled to hear his unique perspective.

Dan Ralphs

LDSHE West is thrilled to have Dan Ralphs speak to the adults and the youth. The youth will learn how to do hard things and how to train their parents. Adults and youth alike will enjoy together his keynote address, Discovering One's Inner Light.

Susan Wise Bauer

Author and speaker Susan Wise Bauer shares with us how to choose online courses for our kids, and how to prepare them for college. We're also pleased to have her deliver our East conference closing keynote address, Homeschooling the Second Time Around.

Julie Bogart

The LDSHE East Youth Education Conference is excited to host Julie Bogart, creator and owner of Brave Writer. The adults get her all day on Wednesday, but then on Thursday it's the teens' turn, with a talk about writing in the digital age, and a special 90 minute writing workshop!

What our past attendees have to say:

LDSHE is the best ever. I loved my first year and I CAN'T WAIT TILL NEXT YEAR!

12 year old from MD, 2014, Virginia Beach

Listening to these classes answered my questions and resolved my fears. I was investigating homeschool. It helped me decide to DO it!
