Board of DirectorsMission Statement
The Colorado Adult Education Professional Association (CAEPA) provides leadership to the field of adult education and family literacy by offering opportunities for professional development, advocacy, and resource sharing to improve the quality of life for every Coloradan.
CAEPA members represent adult education and family literacy programs from across Colorado that are diverse in nature: local community and faith-based organizations, community colleges, school districts, corrections facilities, workforce districts and libraries. Altogether, CAEPA affiliates account for nearly 15,000 of Colorado's learners each year. See the CAEPA Bylaws for detailed information.
CAEPA provides a context for ongoing professional dialogue and sharing in Adult Education - including advocacy, networking, lobbying, research and programming, resources, policy development, and coordination with the Colorado Department of Education, Correctional Education Association, and other public agencies.
