Mizizi Homeschool Co-op

Louisville, KY

502 - 416 - 4612


The Mizizi Homeschool Co-op serves to support  African-American homeschooling parents and their children. The co-op is a grassroots effort founded by parents in YAMAH, a support group for African-American Mothers. The co-op provides families with the tools they need to successfully homeschool their children. By inviting homeschooled children into learning cohorts with Black educators, our students get the best of both worlds. They are given the opportunity to participate in group learning, cultural and social activities, and their parents are able to collaborate with others on finding the best resources and methods to teach their children at home. The program is evaluated by BLOC Stars.

About Us

Play Cousins Collective is an African American Family Collective building villages around our children through family and children’s programming and resource sharing. Families create and lead programs (rooted in Ancestral methods of healing and resilience) to serve their unique needs, heal generational traumas and build a network that insulates them from systemic oppression and racism.
