Learning for Work & Life
Beyond Literacy provides opportunities for adults and families by harnessing the power of literacy through free, high-quality education. Literacy is the ability to read and write and studies show that literacy can lift people out of poverty. As the largest literacy agency in Philadelphia, BeLit helps learners improve their reading, writing, math, English language, digital literacy, and workplace skills. Our classes move students from learning to earning, helping them succeed as workers, parents, and neighbors.
