Inspire Santa Fe works with young people (aged 12-19) to identify an interest that they are deeply drawn to, and matches them with a community expert. Together, an adult mentor and youth protégé embark on an exploration of their shared interest that ends with them creating a project that “gives back” to the community. As a former teacher, Zara appreciates this opportunity to stay connected with the youth of Santa Fe. Here she is with her 2016 protégé, Celeste Sandoval.
