CVARP is an Arizona non-profit 501 (c) 3 corporation dedicated to helping adults live better lives through education.
Our mission is to offer adults in Camp Verde and adjacent Verde Valley communities the opportunity to achieve personal goals through improved reading, writing, math, and life skills.
Everyone age 16 or older not enrolled in school who lives in the Verde Valley will have access to high quality, free adult education. Through continuing adult education, they will improve their chances for meaningful employment, be able to help their children and grandchildren with schoolwork and understanding the world, develop critical thinking skills, and ultimately live better lives.
We value education for the sake of personal and community enrichment.
We value reading, both for education and for recreation.
We value critical thinking skills developed through reading and education.
We value the freedom to read and learn.
We value democracy and believe that an educated person is a person who votes wisely.
We value our children and grandchildren and believe that the more they read, the better their lives will become.
We value all members of our community and believe that education helps them to become better citizens.
