MyPLACE SM Online Courses Logo

Earlier this year, The Commission launched three myPLACE℠ Campuses at high-performing literacy agencies in Philadelphia. The campuses offer adult learner assessment and enrollment into face-to-face adult basic education, GED®, and ESL courses at 16 myPLACE℠ partner locations across the city. Qualified learners can also opt to participate in The Commission’s new online courses at the low-intermediate levels in reading, writing and math. Six-week courses run year-round, making adult education accessible anywhere, anytime, and on any device.

All learners who read at or above a 4th grade level are placed into a prerequisite online course, Introduction to Adult Learning and Careers. The self-paced course teaches adult study and computer skills while guiding learners through a career search where they create a résumé and an individualized Learning Plan and Career Pathway. To date, over 1,000 learners have completed this groundbreaking course and have started improving their workforce literacy skills.

Now entering the demonstration phase, myPLACE℠ has created Philadelphia’s first adult education system along with the nation’s first online basic education courses for low-literate adults. The program is easily scalable and The Commission hopes it will be replicated on a national level.

To learn more about this program including how your literacy agency can become an official myPLACE℠ partner, contact Diane Inverso, Senior Director, Mayor’s Commission on Literacy, InversoD@freelibrary.org.
