David Denman Reports on Goals of TIME OUT
David Denman, an Education Consultant from Mill Valley, California, reports clients from a half dozen states for his service called TIME OUT. The goal of TIME OUT is to help young people and those not so young who wish "to extend their education and enrich their personal development by means of carefully arranged, extraordinary experiences." Experiences arranged by David include working with a conservation corps in Australia, working on an Israel Kibbutz, placement as assistant to a team of solid-state physics researchers at the Technological University in Holland, working as a junior staff member at an elementary boarding school on a farm in the East, and an extended cross-country bus tour. His focus is not so much "where to go" or "what to do", but is more developmental in that he looks at what goals and experiences would nurture the most growth in each individual.

Common Denominator of CEDU Families
"The common denominator of CEDU families is the absence of meaningful communication between parent and adolescent....

The CEDU School newsletter, Winter, 1990. Deborah Scott & Jean Giordano - Editors.
