Adults with Disabilities and River Valley Project Explore

River Valley Project Explore is a Community Education program designed to serve adults with physical and developmental cognitive disabilities by encouraging inclusion in community activities and providing customized learning, social and recreational opportunities. Farmington Community Education partners with multiple school districts to offer services to those with disabilities.

RVPE serves Minnesota cities south of the Twin Cities metro through a consortium of five school districts including Burnsville, Farmington, Lakeville, Randolph and Rosemount. For over 30 years Project Explore has been a leader in providing opportunities and services in Dakota County.  RVPE’s mission is to empower adults with disabilities to make valuable contributions to their community as employees, volunteers, learners and citizens.

Farmington adult residents participate in the many classes and events scheduled throughout the year. Registration is required and more information can be found at or seasonal catalogs are available at the Farmington Community Education office at Meadowview Elementary, 6100 195th Street W., in Farmington. Volunteers are encouraged to assist with these programs and more information is available by calling Patty Vance, RVPE Coordinator at 651-423-7931.
