The Durango Education Foundation (DEF) is excited to announce our Back to School Resource Fair: a one-stop shop of school-year programs and resources for students and their families.

We are fortunate in Durango to have a wealth of opportunities for our students but it's often difficult to find all of them. Whether it's school-level activities, after-school programs, tutoring/mentoring opportunities, physical activities, after-school care, support services, family resources, supply giveaways, and more - we want our community families to know what is being offered.


Participants of this event will have the unique opportunity to engage with families face-to-face. This will allow non-profits and businesses to connect, conduct on-site sign-ups and increase awareness.


This event will be held at La Plata Fairgrounds on Wednesday, August 23rd from 4-7 PM. Set up will start at 3 PM. There is no cost for a booth space and a table will be provided. We encourage participating organizations to make their tables as interactive and fun as possible.

There will be food, games, and giveaways! 


To take advantage of the unique opportunity to connect with Durango families, contact Wendy Allsbrook Javier at 970-769-7600 or
