The Community Foundation serving SW Colorado will again offer a paid summer internship opportunity to 10 local high school students which also benefits 10 selected Durango nonprofits. Through the CAUSE (Community Action Utilizing Service Experience) Youth Internship Program, participating nonprofits will receive a complete marketing/social media campaign for their 2024 SW Colorado Gives outreach and an operational grant of $2,500 for marketing. The grant application for nonprofits opens on March 1, and it closes on April 1.

The CAUSE youth internship program is funded by local philanthropists who want to provide enriching workplace experiences for high school youth, while benefiting local nonprofits.

Selected nonprofits will host a rising junior or senior intern for four weeks in June (3-28). Interns will help the organization’s team and produce a complete social media campaign for SW CO Gives Day by the end of the internship. The work environment must be engaging, onsite, and professional. A nonprofit staff member must be assigned as the intern’s mentor and supervisor, working in-person with them four days per week (M-Th).

To be eligible, nonprofits must be Durango-based and a tax-exempt 501(c)(3) organization or under the fiscal agency of a 501(c)(3). Nonprofits must have public office space. Nonprofits must also be approved on the Colorado Gives platform. 

Durango nonprofits interested in applying for this grant can visit swcommunityfoundation.org/youth-internship-grants or call Rachel at 970.375.5807 ext. 5.  Students interested in applying for this paid internship may also contact the Community Foundation to learn more.

Durango PlayFest's REAL-WORLD THEATRE speaker series will present a talk by Alex Riad, an Egyptian-American playwright and graduate of The Juilliard School, on Thursday, March 7, from 1–2 p.m. at Fort Lewis College (Theatre Building – Main Stage Theatre).

The free event is open to students in 8th grade and older from area public and private schools, as well as those who are home-schooled. The public is also encouraged to attend.

Riad’s play, “Heartbeat,” was featured at PlayFest’s 2023 festival. The New York-based writer has been a part of The Lark's Middle Eastern Writers Lab, a member of The Actor's Studio Playwright Unit, a Lila Acheson Wallace American playwriting fellow at The Juilliard School, and is currently under commission at the Atlantic Theater Company via the Judith Champion Launch Commission Program.

“Alex is an incredibly talented writer. His mastery of dialogue and exploration of the human condition make his works appealing to broad audiences,” said Debbie Pfeifer, chair of the PlayFest board of directors. “We’re thrilled that he’s returning to Durango to inspire students who are interested in playwriting or various careers in the theatre industry.”

PlayFest launched the REAL-WORLD THEATRE speaker series in 2023 as a means to connect young theatre professionals from diverse backgrounds with students in La Plata and surrounding counties. Frank discussions of the challenges and opportunities in the theatre industry can inspire students to envision careers they may not have otherwise considered.
