ASDE’s Organizational Membership Program, job opportunities, and events

Hi Everyone,

The Alliance for Self-Directed Education is thrilled to partner with all kinds of organizations that are supportive of and advocate for Self-Directed Education through the Organizational Membership program.

We ask that all organizational members are practicing and sharing Self-Directed Education as defined by the Alliance, and that we hold shared values with our organizational members. We see ASDE and organizational members as partners who are striving to support and share Self-Directed Education, making it a more accessible option for everyone.

Below are some ways that ASDE and organizational members can support one another and work together. If you are interested in an organizational membership, please think of the ways you can commit to this shared partnership, and ways that ASDE can continue to support your work.

Partnership Opportunities:
-Organization’s logo listed on the front page of ASDE’s website.
Your logo will link to the homepage of your organization
-A special digital “badge” that you can display on your website
-Cross posting content from one another’s organizations, on Facebook and Instagram
-Organizational membership meetings to share what ASDE is doing, solicit your feedback for the Alliance, and give space for organizations to share and support one another
-Writing articles or creating content for Tipping Points Magazine, to share about how SDE lives at your center, and highlight diverse voices of the SDE movement
-Organizational Members sending events, job postings, and news that you would like us to share with our members and subscribers in our newsletters and on social media
-Organizational Members posting offerings, resources, and jobs in our Resource Directory
