To serve as a regional information hub that provides community members and organizations with the information and tools they need to thrive civically, socially, and economically in the 21st Century.
SWConnect is a project of The Durango Adult Education Center
What is SWConnect?
SWConnect.org is a resource portal and an online gathering center designed to highlight collective resources in our local communities of Archuleta, Dolores, La Plata, Montezuma, and San Juan counties. Our goal is to create an opportunity to access quality information, to invite contributions from community members and host educational gatherings, all while growing our networks of peers, mentors and partners within our five counties.
Goals for the web portal are:
Map the region and its assets
Increase social, civic, and economic engagement locally
Create a system that connects everyone in the region to the resources they need to thrive and to help those with whom they interact to thrive
Build community capacity and collaboration through the sharing of resources and increasing the connectivity among organizations throughout the five county region
Engage the community in user-generated content production.
