Santa Fe Community Educators Network

Purpose 

In order to meet the needs of Santa Fe youth, the Santa Fe Community Educators’ Network members will work in concert to provide outcome driven programming in and out of school hours.  Groups involved with informal education will meet monthly to discuss a variety of topics.  Groups include cultural organizations, foundations, environmental organizations, and public school representatives.

  • Description 
    This collaborative group will identify and bring together organizations that provide programming in and out of school.  The group will establish common goals, which will follow best practices and encourage the use of internal assessments to further hone programming.  This collaboration is a foundation for future work, which will involve a more strategic alignment of programming to address the needs of the Santa Fe community and reduce duplicate services.  It will also become a first step toward organizations creating cohesive strands of programming that could be followed across multiple grades.
