LEAF Home Learners Network
"Learning Enrichment Active Fellowship"
LEAF is a network of home learners that welcomes all homeschoolers in many communities in south-central Massachusetts, northern Rhode Island and northeastern Connecticut.

The main purpose of LEAF is to give families, interested in participating, the opportunity to share resources and talents, field trips and events, learning enrichment opportunities, park and beach days, and overall fellowship with others, in a variety of group settings.

The LEAF network is for those who would like to maintain connections with other families throughout the year through an ongoing calendar of events to be updated by the participants themselves.

To be a part of LEAF, all that is needed is a willingness and commitment to actively participate on a regular basis by offering ideas and events to share.
