  • Structure and direction for the homeschool

  • Extra-curricular activity options

Maybe the type of community you are looking for doesn’t exist in your area and you are thinking about starting your own co-op—once you have all of the necessary requirements, submit your local homeschooling group to our database so people near you can find your new co-op or homeschooling group!

 

Whether you are an introvert or extrovert, whether you live in a city or rural area, whether your kids are just hitting school age or about to graduate, there is homeschooling encouragement and support to be found in community.

Destination DC serves as the lead organization to successfully manage and market Washington, DC as a premier global convention, tourism and special events destination, with a special emphasis on the arts, cultural and historical communities.

 

By developing and executing centralized and cohesive sales and marketing strategies, Destination DC generates economic development for the city through tourism and meetings. In 2018, visitor spending totaled $7.8 billion, representing more than $851 million in new tax dollars for the District of Columbia. Washington, DC welcomed a record 22.8 million visitors in 2017 – a record high that includes more than 2 million overseas visitors. (See the full list of visitor research facts & figures.)

 

Destination DC is a private, non-profit corporation with a membership of 1,000+ businesses and organizations that support the DC travel and tourism sector. A contracting arm of Events DC, the organization is funded by a percentage of DC’s hotel occupancy tax, along with membership dues and co-operative marketing fees.

 

Formerly known as the Washington, DC Convention & Tourism Corporation (WCTC), the organization was renamed in 2008 to reflect the organization’s increased emphasis on the city’s unique assets. WCTC was established by business and community leaders in April 2001 by merging the Washington, DC Convention and Visitors Association and the DC Committee to Promote Washington. The Washington, DC Convention and Visitors Association was founded in 1931 to promote convention and leisure travel to the nation’s capital.
