ACE affords you the luxury of lifelong learning. Learning begins at birth and continues throughout your life. Formal and informal learning opportunities are available to residents of all ages of the Mid-Columbia region in a wide variety of settings.

The program provides local residents and community agencies and institutions the opportunity to become active partners in addressing community concerns.

Our goal is to provide quality instructional programs and services which are community-based, responsive, and accessible, offering individuals the opportunity to achieve their educational goals.

Do you want to:

  • Upgrade your skills?
  • Learn a new trade?
  • Learn how to dance, or quilt, or make stained glass?
  • Learn a new language?

How about taking a cooking class, or a computer class? Perhaps a trip to the Portland Art Museum would interest you. The possibilities are endless!

Want to teach a class?

Do you have a unique interest or skill that you want to share with your community? Do you have experience teaching adults? If the answer is yes to either of these questions, and you have an idea for a class you would like to teach, please contact us. Our goal is to broaden your horizon.
