Our outreach programs provide support and education for community members at all stages of life. From Scouting to GED classes to 12 step programs to Seniors...people helping people is what the OPCC is all about.


Adult Education Program

The community currently has educational needs that we here at the Old Pine Community Center are trying to fulfill. The Adult Education Program is expanding and working hard to get our learners into a comfortable place that they can be proud of in their lives. We are enriching the lives of hundreds of people in the community through one-on-one tutoring and would like to continue to do so. We are in need of volunteers for the Adult Education Program to help us continue this mission and to help more people. If you would like to help us serve the City of Brotherly Love, please contact us at adulteducation@oldpine.org or call 215-627-2493.
