2021 Conference Exhibitors
Alliance for Self-Directed Education - self-directed.org
We envision a world where young people’s human rights are respected and upheld, which includes the freedom to direct their lives and education; and where Self-Directed Education (SDE) is widely embraced, accepted, and available to all families regardless of their status, race, or income.
The Alliance for Self-Directed Education (ASDE) is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to increasing accessibility and awareness of Self-Directed Education as a way of living and learning, and connecting the communities and voices of the movement.
The Values of the Alliance
We value the agency of young people, and joyful and fulfilling lives for all. We steer towards this by destroying obstacles like ableism and white supremacy while holding space for young people’s embodiment of liberation through play and curiosity as much as possible in the here and now. Community is both a practice and a path in this work.
Atlas Book Club - atlasbookclub.com
Atlas Book Club is a book subscription box company focused on globally diverse children's books. Our mission is threefold - (1) to help children of all backgrounds see themselves in the books that they read; (2) to help children travel to different parts of the world and experience world cultures; and (3) to help shatter “the single story” and stereotypes.
Here is how our subscription works - every month, we send out an Atlas Box themed after a different country. Each box contains an age-appropriate book, a fun facts card, bookmark, postcard, a map poster for tracking countries explored, and a culturally relevant souvenir, all for the purpose of immersing the child in the culture of the country featured in an intentional manner. We have four age groups for varying reading levels, ranging from picture books to young adult novels.
