Definition & Purpose ...
Community Education is an opportunity for local citizens, community schools, agencies and institutions to become active partners in addressing education and community concerns. Community Education embraces these beliefs: education is a lifelong process, everyone in the community shares a responsibility for the mission of educating all members of the community and citizens have a right and responsibility to link the needs of the resources to improve their community.
The Havre Public Schools' Community Education Program strives to serve the community by offering a variety of opportunities for adults to continue in pursuit of life-long learning. In the class listing you will find education, recreational and enrichment activities to fit your needs. Classes offer everything from computers, crafts, cooking, physical fitness to artistic talents. An average of 40 classes are offered three sessions a year. Approximately 350 people attend each session.
Unique classes and adults willing to share their talents by instructing classes are in demand. If you are interested in a specific new offering or know of someone who would enjoy the rewards of instructing, please call the Community Education office at 395-8550 ext. 6716.
The fulfillment people enjoy from participating is a constant reminder of the benefit of offering Community Education classes in Havre.
