About The Event

Come join us in Almaty, Kazakhstan for a fun-filled and community-centered worldschooling gathering July 1 - 7, 2024.

The Worldschool Pop-Up Hub provides super casual, budget-friendly opportunities to gather, connect with other worldschoolers, learn about the local area, instill new friendships, share your insights, and immerse in a friendly, accepting mobile community. Our activities highlight local nature, history, food, and culture... but you'll also have plenty of time to relax, get to know each other, and even stray from the itinerary to add activities that cater to the group's interests.

Pop in for a few days or the full week. Join as many activities as you'd like. It's up to you!

Our itinerary will include activities such as the following:

*Cable Car up Kok Tobe Hill

*Zenkov Cathedral

*Green Bazaar

*Central Mosque

*Central State Museum

*Panfilov Park

*Kazakhstan Museum of Art

*First President Park

*Almaty City Museum

*Zhibek Zholy Pedestrian Street

*Academy of Sciences

*Sunset Drinks at Hotel Kazakhstan's Rooftop Bar

Add-on options include a stop at the Arasan Baths for a local spa treatment or taking a day trip to Big Almaty Lake (25km away).

Rachel & family sold everything in 2014 and never have looked back. We've been completely nomadic since 2018, homeschooling our three children. Some of our favorite family travel destinations include Turkey, Romania, New Zealand, Spain, and London. Our two younger kids will join the Pop-Up and will be 14 and 17 years old.

We run the Worldschool Pop-Up Hub and love the people we get to meet from this venture. So far, we've personally hosted or co-hosted more than 20 events and have attended a handful more. Can't wait to invite you into our mobile communities.


Many of our activities will take place in the Medeu District of Almaty (roughly from the Park of 28 Panfilov Guardsmen to Central Park & the Almaty Zoo).  The Arbat pedestrian area in the Almany District is a close second for a centralized location. Past visitors also report they enjoyed staying near the Opera House and the host family will be staying in that area. 

There are no outright dangerous areas of town, however it's good to note the area around the Green Bazaar can be dusty & noisy, and areas to the west and north of central Almaty become a bit shabbier (south of city center becomes more luxurious).  

Almaty is Central Asia's 2nd-largest and most modern city, and as in any big city, exercise caution for pickpockets and keep your valuables secure. Central Almaty is quite walkable with pedestrian streets and green spaces. Metros, busses, and ride apps such as Uber and Yandex are available as well. If using the street taxis, negotiate the fair ahead of time. 


Join the private Facebook group to ask questions, stay up to date on activities in the area, meet the host, and interact with other potential attendees:
