URBAN NEST

Before moving to Portland in the fall of 2008, Carolyn was a librarian and used her research skills to find the best spot to continue homeschooling her daughters. They fell in love with Portland and quickly became active in Village Home’s east side campus; the girls (who are now 13 and 16) taking classes, and Carolyn running the Unschooling Chat and participating in the east side Parent Action Committee for several years. Ten years later, they continue to love homeschooling, Village Home, and the amazing city of Portland. As a way to give back to the homeschooling community that has been so great to her family, Carolyn has created a website called Portland Homeschooling Resources. If you know of a business or organization that should be listed, please let Carolyn know! Carolyn loves that she gets to use the same customer service, research, and problem solving skills she used as a librarian to assist her clients in navigating the often complex waters of buying and selling a home! You can follow her on social media at www.facebook.com/CarolynGrovesPDX.

The Circus Project is a Portland-based nonprofit that is dedicated to transforming lives through the circus arts via public classes, outreach and equity programs and artistic development opportunities. We believe that circus arts are a powerful tool for growth, as they teach strength, resilience, goal-setting and communication, all in an environment that remains creative and fun! Our circus classes cover a variety of disciplines (trapeze, aerial fabric, tumbling, juggling, dance and more!) for people of all levels and abilities. We also offer private lessons, birthday parties and intensive training companies for the dedicated student.
