Previously known as the Teachers Resource Fair, held in 2015 and 2016, Teachers Night Out provides an opportunity for teachers to meet with local organizations that provide educational programs, field trips, professional development, and other resources to teachers and students. 

The Santa Fe Community Educators Network (SFCEN) provides a forum for education directors from local nonprofits and government entities to come together for support, conversation, and the opportunity to be inspired by one another. 

Members of SFCEN collaborate on community programming to provide quality experiential learning opportunities, teacher trainings, and other afterschool and extended learning programs such as for the City of Santa Fe Summer Youth Program and Twenty-first Century Community Learning initiative.

Groups include cultural organizations, foundations, environmental organizations, and public school representatives. Lead collaborators from the Santa Fe Community Educators Network include Santa Fe Birth to Career Collaboration (SF B2C) at the Santa Fe Community Foundation, Georgia O’Keeffe Museum, Museum of International Folk Art, New Mexico History Museum/Palace of the Governors, New Mexico Museum of Art, School for Advanced Research/Indian Arts Research Center, Santa Fe Botanical Garden, Santa Fe Youth Symphony Association and SITE Santa Fe.
