YHES serves as a representational body in communication with the Yukon Department of Education. We advocate for home educators’ rights and support them in navigating and complying with the policies and processes governing home education in the Yukon.
YHES has played a role in ensuring homeschooling families receive certain types of funding and equal access to resources. Access to and options for distance learning programming have also been the subject of our discussions with the Yukon government. The representation of YHES has been crucial to homeschooling families receiving equal rights and representation in the Yukon.
