6. To learn to live well and with dignity, even if they don’t have much money, they have to take care of the house in which they live and, whatever little or a lot they have, they have to share it. They will have more than they need and enough for a very good education if they take care of it. That is why everyone knows that what they break, they have to pay for.
7. Punctuality is required. It is a form of respect for the group. Failure to do so has consequences. For example: if you are late for study, you stay more time to make up for it; if you are late for lunch, you don’t get to eat; if you are late at the weekend, you don’t go out the following weekend,…
8. Activities are for everyone. If they think something is good, it is offered to everyone. There is usually the possibility to choose between several alternatives, to cover different interests, but what is not allowed is to do nothing. The opinions expressed in the Assemblies are taken into account, except for those that are unjustified. The person who knows the most about each issue or who knows how to express it best, decides and convinces.
9. Everyone has to stick to timetables for classes or work, reading, study and workshops. You cannot be in the Home doing something else. Guests must also be incorporated into the institution’s programme. Otherwise, they must leave.
10. The spiritual dimension is crucial. They should participate in the meetings that the Christian community holds at Sunday mass. Communion with the Faith is not mandatory, but there is a time for reflection and experiences that help everyone. This is also done with the Muslim community that meets to read the Quran, celebrate Ramadan or other festivities.
11. In order to appreciate the advantages of association, they organise courses, workshops, parties, camping trips, trips, etc. These are offered to people from outside, and a symbolic amount is charged so that the boys and girls realise the value of the opportunities and what can be achieved by doing things well. Strength comes from unity and not from going alone. They can make the most out of schooling, even coming from underprivileged families with scarce resources. It is so good that it is in everyone’s interest, from privileged families to university students. We created the Association so that you can belong to it even if you don’t live in the Home. We don’t want to be marginalised or excluded from what is happening in the world because we are young.
