The Ontario Federation of Teaching Parents

Support OFTP

The OFTP is run entirely by volunteers. From our executive team and our support volunteers, to our writers, contributors and members, we rely on our community to be able to continue our mission: offering advocacy, support and information to the Ontario homeschooling community. 

How can you help? 

There are three main ways you can support OFTP: 

1. Become a member

While all of our services are provided free of charge, without obligation to any homeschooling family in Ontario, our members help us continue. Your membership gives us the financial and organizational support we need to help the entire community. 

So one of the easiest ways you can support us is to become a member. Check out the benefits and how to join here.

2. Volunteer

We rely heavily on volunteers to keep going! Our entire executive team are volunteers, and we’re always looking for support. 

Volunteer to curate content for our Facebook page or to moderate our Facebook group. Become an area rep and welcome new homeschoolers in your area. Become a mentor to walk with new homeschoolers as they get started.

We also, occasionally, will post positions on our executive team as our volunteers step back.

3. Contribute

We’re always looking for contributions to our blog, newsletter and resource directories. 

Contribute to our blog: 

If you’re a writer, or you want to share an article, story, report or video created by you or one of your homeschooled children, consider contributing to our blog! We’ll post your original content, either for general public interest or for members-only viewing (totally up to you!). 

Contribute to our newsletter and social media: 

Got an activity, field trip, or meet-up planned? Or offering a discount or freebie to our membership? Submit your offer to our media team! 

We also appreciate pictures of art, science experiments or field trips for our newsletter and/or social media. Share what you’re up to with our members! 

Contribute to our resource directories: 

You can submit your listing to our online directories via this form: Resource Directory Listing

You can also submit your listing to our annual business directory. A copy of this directory is given to every member as part of their membership package.
