Membership in LEAH is through a local chapter. A LEAH Chapter typically provides opportunities to meet with experienced home educators, join field trips, attend or participate in athletic activities, and gain access to a variety of other events.

LEAH Chapters are organized in seven geographic regions covering the state. Each region is overseen by its Regional Representative who also represents that region on the LEAH Board of Directors. Please contact the Regional Representative in your area with questions about homeschooling, and for assistance in locating a LEAH Chapter near you.
