Greater La Pine Adult Education and Recreation

“To provide accessible adult programs that promote higher education, personal improvement, job advancement and individual enrichment for the greater La Pine area.”

Because of the low socioeconomic level of many of the residents, the high number of homeless residents, and the high rate of unemployment, there is a pervasive need for education to assist adults in obtaining jobs, in improving job performance and productivity, and in maintaining their quality of life.

The Greater La Pine Adult Education Committee (the Committee) was established with the goal of providing accessible adult education that promotes higher education, personal improvement, job advancement, and individual enrichment for the residents of the Greater La Pine area. This area includes over 21,000 residents in southern Deschutes County; northern Klamath County to Chemult, including Crescent, Gilchrist, Beaver Marsh, and Crescent Lake; and Fort Rock, Christmas Valley, and Silver Lake in Lake County.

The afore-mentioned factors create a challenging demographic that is further complicated by the lack of an efficient or effective communications network and an inadequate infrastructure for public transportation. This means that there is an ever-growing need for adult education in an area where it is difficult to share information on available resources and difficult for the individual to access those resources once they have been located.

Your support will provide the resources we need to promote higher education, personal improvement, job advancement, and individual enrichment.
