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 – Members of the learning center are solely responsible for figuring out how they would like to spend their time.
  2. Freedom – Members are given complete freedom to spend their time as they wish.
  3. Access to Tools – Members may bring any tools they wish to use at the learning center, or bring a proposal to the community meeting to purchase tools for the learning center.
  4. Nonjudgmental Support – Adult staff members are there to help facilitate any ideas the members wish to execute. There are no grades or tests.
  5. Age Mixing – Members may spend their time with any members or staff that they choose.
  6. Healthy Community – Decisions and rules are made via a weekly community meeting where all members may speak and vote.
