About Community Education of Bowling Green, Warren County: Created in 1973, Community Education of Bowling Green, Warren County collaborates with other agencies and organizations to provide lifelong learning for our citizens while utilizing existing physical and human resources and not duplicating other efforts. An interlocal agreement between both local school districts and Warren County Fiscal Court sustains the agency.

Community Education has grown to provide before and after-school programs for hundreds of children and youth on school days during the academic year and at all-day programs offered during school breaks. Enrichment classes for adults cover a variety of subjects including fine arts (art, dance, and music), crafts, cooking, computers, finance, fitness, foreign language, history, recreation, sewing, sports, occasional online classes, and more. Community Education offers volunteer opportunities and training for adults to go into schools to work with children and to assist with local events. The agency also works very closely with Volunteers in Action to train volunteer managers and to recognize the volunteers within our region.

Community Education is a proud partner of the Bowling Green Area Chamber of Commerce, the Kentucky Nonprofit Network, and Vision, a multi-agency council in Warren County.

IMPORTANT SAFETY MESSAGE FROM OUR EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR

When we hear about tragedies like the recent ones in Buffalo and Uvalde, we are overwhelmed with emotions. Our hearts are heavy as we embrace the victim’s families from afar.

In addition to great sadness, anger, and the other emotions we feel, our thoughts also turn to make sure our families are as safe as possible. The safety of your children is the number one priority of everyone involved in our school-age programs. We do the same safety drills in Extreme Summer Club as we do during the school year, including lockdown/lockout practice. I hope you have seen first-hand the other daily safety measures we have in place.

Please contact me or the Camp Directors Erin Lightfoot and Jarrod Shive if you have any questions or concerns. Thank you for trusting us with your children, a responsibility we take very seriously.

Bill Oldham

Executive Director, Community Education
