Special thanks to the Pennsylvania Department of Education and Philadelphia Youth Network for their support.
Center for Literacy (CFL) is an active member of the Philadelphia Adult Literacy Alliance, and a trusted partner to the Philadelphia Prison System, Mayor’s Office of Reentry, Philadelphia Reentry Coalition, Philadelphia Works, PA CareerLink, Philadelphia Youth Network, and many others.
CFL also operates programs with partners at their sites, such as Drexel’s Dornsife Center, which is a one-stop shop for the Mantua community, ESL classes at Free Library of Philadelphia sites, and customized programs for Philadelphia Prison System ex-offenders that enable them to start literacy classes immediately after their release from prison.
CFL became the Mayor’s Commission on Literacy’s fifth myPLACE℠ campus in February 2016, which means it is a one-stop shop for adult education and career preparation. In this role, CFL develops a plan for each adult learner to help them achieve a high school equivalency and move on to the next phase of their educational and career path.
How to Become a Partner
The Center for Literacy relies upon partners to fulfill its mission of serving a diverse population of learners in Philadelphia. We have a wealth of experience bringing effective programs into communities, and a network of partners that help facilitate, underwrite, host, advocate and/or champion literacy services.
If your organization is interested in exploring literacy ideas or programs, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
There are numerous organizations throughout Philadelphia that provide CFL with space for classes and tutoring. Current site hosts include libraries, churches, community centers, and universities. Our site partners make it possible for us to provide services in neighborhoods we otherwise might not reach. We are tremendously grateful for their support.
If your organization is interested in becoming a host site, please contact us.
