Adult Education Program for the Valley Towns of Derby, Ansonia, Shelton, Seymour and Monroe

The first regional adult education agency in Connecticut, established in 1970, Valley Regional Adult Education (VRAE) provides educational services to the residents of Ansonia, Derby, Monroe, Seymour, and Shelton. Adults come to Valley Regional Adult Education  to attend our free Academic Programs or to take advantage of numerous enrichment courses offered in each Valley town.

Adult education programs in Connecticut address the needs of the undereducated adult, the new arrival to this country, and the individual as worker, parent and community member. These programs operate through each local school district for the benefit of its community residents.


VRAE mission statement

At Valley Regional Adult Education, we are committed to developing a sense of “community education” in which local citizens, schools, agencies, and businesses work together to address the educational needs of the Valley Community. Our goal is to be a vital organization, responsible for creating an environment that continually fosters 100% engagement of students and staff through:

• Commitment     • Integrity     • Innovation and Creativity     • Quality

The Anatomy of an Inclusive—and Successful—Community Partnership: Q&A with Thomas Wyatt

Thomas Wyatt, a researcher, urban planner and 2019 Rubinger Fellow from Flint, Michigan, discusses what it takes to forge cross-sector partnerships that can achieve authentic community change. A prime example: Flint’s University Avenue Corridor Coalition brought residents and institutions together to reduce a neighborhood’s entrenched blight and crime when nothing else could.

What Happens When Workforce Development Meets Industrial District Revitalization

A new white paper from LISC’s Research and Evaluation team shows how revitalizing industrial districts can have an extraordinary impact in creating good jobs, activating neighborhoods and sparking local economies. Case in point: New York’s Brooklyn Navy Yard, an inspiring model for disinvested districts across the country.

“I Believe in the Power of Storytelling.” A Q&A with LISC’s Tope Folarin, Whose Novel Debuts this Week

“She told me I could serve her in heaven.” From that powerful opening line in A Particular Kind of Black Man, award-winning author Tope Folarin leads readers through an exploration of identity as seen through the eyes of a first-generation Nigerian-American. Folarin, whose “day job” is as LISC’s vice president of content and storytelling, says the story is relevant not just because of its connection to immigration and race, but because it looks at the way people struggle to build their own personal narratives…to live into their own stories. On the eve of his book tour, he talked about how his work as a novelist intersects with his work at LISC.
