SANTA FE COMMUNITY EDUCATORS NETWORK
Working to increase access to experiental education and cultural institutions for the Santa Fe Community
The Santa Fe Community Educators Network (SFCEN) is a collaborative working group, part of the Opportunity Santa Fe: Birth to Career Initiative. We are a collection of educators from forty-five different organizations throughout Santa Fe and the surrounding areas who believe in the power of collaboration to enhance experiential education in our community. Collectively we promote hands-on, project based learning in the community through engaging programming in a variety of settings.
Our offerings includes in- class, out of school time and family programming as well as teacher support and curriculum development. Additionally, we provide opportunities for networking, professional development as well as for shared growth and learning among informal educators in nonprofit organizations. It is our belief that we have the potential to make a greater impact in enriching tour community together than any one of organizations has alone. We hope your will join us in utilizing diverse and engaging experiential education to create a city where schools, families and students can thrive!
WHAT WE DO
As a network we partner with City of Santa Fe and Santa Fe Public Schools to provide programming in a variety of out-of-school time settings. Our partnerships include Adelante's Juntos program, the Sweeney Elementary After School Program and the City of Santa Fe's Summer Youth Program.
Teachers are at the forefront of our education system. Our network is committed to supporting an complimenting the work of classroom teachers.
