September is now Philly’s Adult Education Month

And the Office of Adult Education has a whole bunch going on, as Director of Professional Development and Community Engagement Naomie Nyanungo shared during her "Around the Corner" interview.

Around the Corner” is a PhillyCAM show that offers local social impact leaders the opportunity to share what impact their work is having on the Philadelphia area.


This Sept. 8 marked International Literacy Day.

It was also the one-year anniversary of the former Mayor’s Commission on Literacy changing its name to the Office of Adult Education.

Oh, and it’s part of the month of September — which happens to be Philadelphia’s newly designated Adult Education Month.

All of these mean the office, which provides adult education services such as digital skills and English language classes, is busy. Check out its website for a full list of events this month.

Its work isn’t contained to a month, though. Here’s just a taste of what the office does on a regular basis per Naomie Nyanungo, the director of professional development and community engagement:
