Worldschooler Connect

WorldschoolerConnectLandingPageCalling all Worldschoolers and Family Travelers!!! My family and I have been roadschooling now for 3 years and recently we have been frustrated with the ability to find other kids in our neck of Mexico for our kids to play with. This has prompted us to try to find a site where all the Worldschoolers can be found on a map with the ability to send people near you a direct message to meet up, hang out and have social connections, kids and adults alike. Our search for a site like this came up short. Some were close, but not quite what we were looking for. So, to that end, we created the site our self’s and we’re very close to launching it. The site is called Worldschooler Connect. This is where you come in. The site is only as good as the users on it, and with this link Worldschooler Connect, we are building a list of folks who would both use the site when it launches and would like to be a part of the conversation as we put the finishing touches on the site, though you don’t have to be a part of the conversation if you don’t want to. For instance, would you like the ability to create an event? If a site like this interest you, than please follow the link, Worldschooler Connect, to enter your email address and you will be notified as soon as the site goes live and share it, share it, SHARE IT. Once the site goes live you can then create a profile, log your current location, and find others near you that you can then direct message to meet up and frankly do what you like. We’d love to hear peoples feedback as well, so hit us up with questions/ideas or comment below. We’re all ears. Hopefully many of you will find this useful. P.S., you don’t necessarily have to be a traveler to use it.
