The City of Philadelphia works with community-based organizations to provide adult education for residents who are 16 and older. These vital services help residents build the skills they need to realize their personal, professional, and civic goals.
The Office of Children and Families (OCF) oversees the City’s planning and investments in adult education.
The Languages and Learning Center at the Free Library offers a range of programs and resources for adult learners. Find more here. Databases that support adult learners are available to all Free Library patrons. A library card may be required to access these links. Don’t have a FLP Library Card? Get one here.
