SDE Optimizing Conditions

ASDE surveys all SDE communities/programs about how they provide, enhance, or align with each of the Six Optimizing Conditions for young people to succeed in SDE.  Survey answers:
  1. Responsibility – People are trusted. They can pursue their genuine interest, academic or not. Personal responsibility is required by the community, depending on age.
  2. Youth Autonomy – Participants can totally choose their activities for themselves supported by our staff and the parents community. 100% of activities are at the request of children.
  3. Access to Tools and Technology – Materials and tools are accessible to everyone, depending on responsibility. We have a system of users and responsible groups for the different places. Digital technology is welcome, but not as entertainment. Priority on direct human relationships.
  4. Adult Allies – No grades, no judge about the work of other people by the staff, except if opinion is solicited.
  5. Free Age Mixing – Freedom to relate with anyone, anytime. Private space for people up to 12 and the youngest (3-5/7)
  6. Community – Weekly meeting to look for solutions in the daily community life. One person, one vote.
