Dirigo HOME

Dirigo means "I Lead!"


The purpose of Dirigo HOME is to further the goals of HOME's 20/20 vision by empowering individuals and families to lead the way within the HOME community. Dirigo HOME seeks to 1) impart a knowledge of our Maine history and government, 2) build community, as well as 3) develop and sharpen leadership skills through events, activities, classes, field trips and mentoring opportunities. 


Ongoing Programs

HOME Convention Teen Track 


Each year during the Annual HOME Convention, teens are encouraged to participate in fun filled, action packed workshop sessions designed with their unique needs and interests in mind. Topics vary from year to year, and may include health, safety, relationships, character, government and civics, just to name a few!


Dinner with Friends


Homeschool families are busy with many responsibilities. To keep our homeschool community vibrant, however, we all need time to connect, share ideas and socialize. Potluck dinners are scheduled in different parts of the state throughout the year to bring homeschool families and leaders together, share HOME with others and broaden our reach through community. Please consider hosting a Dinner with Friends gathering in your area. We would love to get acquainted with you, your group and others in your part of the state! Contact the HOME Office for more information.



Upcoming Special Events

HOMEschool Community Building 


Family is the Foundation 

It’s not cliché. It’s profound truth. Family is the foundation of God’s kingdom, society, healthy culture, peace, and progress. We see this at home, in church, downtown, and in business. HOME may be thought of as an organization that promotes a form of education. That is true, but not complete. At the heart of HOME is building family and seeing those families helping families be all they can be.


Come be part of a practical, group interactive look at family. It’s not just a way to bring us together as an organization, but you as a family.  After all, a weak home means a weak HOME. 


Included: What does success look like for family? What is the vision for your family? What plan do you have in place to move toward that vision? What are simple tools that we can look at together to ensure that you get where you want to go as a family? 


Refreshments will be served!
