Next Level Learning

Working with community partners to give adult learners access to education, digital skills training, and a path to job readiness.


The City of Philadelphia works with community-based organizations to provide Next Level Learning 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 this programming.

If you provide education services, including reading, writing, and math, English for speakers of other languages (ESOL), GED and HiSET prep, or basic computer skills, subscribe to our monthly newsletter. We also have opportunities for volunteers interested in tutoring adult learners! Learn more about our volunteer programs.

Next Level Learning classes

The City supports Next Level Learning by offering classes that include reading, writing, math, basic computer skills, high school equivalency preparation, and English for speakers of other languages. Topics include:

  • Reading, writing, and math
  • English for speakers of other languages (ESOL)
  • GED and HiSET prep
  • Basic computer skills

Adult learners can call the hotline at 1-833-750-5627 to learn more about classes and enroll. Calling during regular business hours (8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.) is best. During other times, please leave a message. And please let it ring a while – when possible, we try to have Career Navigators answer live, rather than quickly sending you to voicemail!
