Nicole Daker
Coordinator of Community Engagement


I first came to the Office of Adult Education as an AmeriCorps VISTA in 2015 as the Tech Tutor Program Coordinator. My VISTA year ignited a passion for helping adults in Philadelphia gain access to essential educational and workforce opportunities. I have been lucky enough to accept a position with OAE as the Coordinator of Community Engagement. In this role, I assist with the work of the Philadelphia Adult Literacy Alliance and support the professional development program in online and face-to-face offerings. It has been rewarding to work with a team of dedicated and caring staff to support adult educators and learners, and I look forward maintaining the high quality of services OAE provides. I hold a BA in Social and Historical Studies from Indiana University Bloomington’s College of Arts and Sciences.
