“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.
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:
- Operates the KEYSPOT computer lap network for low-income users
- Coordinates the national Adult Literacy XPRIZE competition of literacy mobile apps
- Trains tutors to teach adult learners tech skills
Learn more about the Office of Adult Education in Nyanungo‘s “Around the Corner” interview below.
