Over 3,400+ enrolled home school students can use their annual instructional budgets ($2,600 for TK-8 and $2,800 for 9-12) to purchase curriculum, enrichment activities and more. In support of their educational goals, we partner with more than 1,000+ Enrichment Service vendors throughout our nine-county service area and beyond to provide enrichment services (athletics, tutoring, art, music, dance,etc.) to our home school families.
To become an Enrichment Vendor, please complete and return the Enrichment Vendor Application via email to VendorSupport@viedu.org or fax to 916.971.5335. We will process your application as quickly as possible. If we have any questions about your application, someone from our Vendor Support Department will contact you. We do require vendors to obtain suitable professional liability insurance which will protect vendors, families and our organization. We have put together sampling of insurance providers currently utilized by other vendors for your convenience (click here for list of insurance providers).
Once you are set up as an approved enrichment vendor, we will showcase your business in our searchable vendor database which provides families an easy tool to find and evaluate vendors near their homes. We will link to your Yelp review (if you have one) to help families determine if you can meet their needs. If you have any questions regarding this process or application, please email us at VendorSupport@viedu.org.
In an effort to help you connect with our students, we have created a reasonably priced advertising opportunity for our vendors to share information about their services. These opportunities include your banner ads linked from our Sponsor page and other pages in our website directly to your site. In addition, we will periodically share information about our vendors on our Facebook page. Our Facebook page has 5,700+ likes which brings a high volume of visitor traffic and provides a great opportunity for a vendor to be seen by our families. Between our website and our Facebook page, these opportunities provide you access to thousands of home schoolers visiting us each year.
