City of Santa Fe: Teen Nights ProgramDeadline: October 6, 2017
The Teen Nights Program was developed as a result and as a recommendation of a Mayor’s Youth Summit which involved teenagers from every middle and high school in Santa Fe, both public and private, to participate in a forum where their views, ideas and recommendations could be expressed. The number one issue that continues to be expressed by the teens is the “lack of recreational and leisurely activities for teens” in Santa Fe.

Events and activities to be conducted shall be recreational and/or leisurely in nature and shall be provided at no cost to participating teens. Activities may be conducted in the form of teen dances or concerts, intramural sports, recreational/sporting exhibitions or competitions such as skateboarding/rollerblading, basketball tournaments, talent shows, custom car and bike shows, movie and bowling nights, etc. with no less than 30 teen participants.
- Provide all staffing, security, advertisement, food, and entertainment services for all events.
Amount: The total compensation shall not exceed $60,000, inclusive of New Mexico Gross Receipts Tax.
Eligibility: Organizations must be a federally recognized nonprofit with an IRS 501(c)3. With rare exception, only Santa Fe-based organizations may apply. Projects must take place in Santa Fe County.
