A new and innovative unschooling conference is on the rise! The Autodidact
Symposium: a gathering for self-directed learners
. Debuting March 12-14 of 2010 in downtown Columbia, South Carolina, The Autodidact Symposium will be a place for veteran unschoolers, novice unschoolers, and everyone in between to create social networks, find potential personal mentors, link up with friends, and find assistance with building a joyful family.

The Autodidact Symposium is a hybrid of Grace Llewellyn's Not Back To School Camp - a place for unschooling young adults to interact with other teens and find mentors to assist them in taking on meaningful, personal challenges and accomplishing big goals- and the popular unschooling conference - focussing on building peaceful and happy families. It is complete with funshops, discussion groups, activities, music, mentors, and presentations from these passionate people: Wes Beach, Blake Boles, Danielle Conger, Beth Fuller, Evan Hunter Wright, Brenna McBroom, and Sean Ritchey.

To learn more about this event, please visit our beautiful website (designed by fellow unschooler, Allen Ellis!): We are updating every month, so check back often! Also check out our Yahoo! Group at to see who's attending, ask questions and discuss travel plans!
