Accounts Payable Representative/Payroll (Current Employee) – Philadelphia, PA – February 18, 2015
I started at HUP as an part time Clerk. They taught me to be a responsible adult. I learned a lot and met valuable friends. I was there for over 20 years and I this is where I found my passion for accounting and numbers. My first supervisor Kathy Wrightson gave me the calculator and a ledger book and that was all it took. I have loved accounting but now I was in love with accounting. I will be grateful for that first job always.
Then I met Steven Kelly. He taught me how to be a fair and partial supervisor and how to get the most out of people.
Manager/Instructor (Former Employee) – Phila, PA – January 6, 2015
While working for the company, I was able to progress from instructor to director. There was great opportunity for advancement with support from both my immediate supervisor and the executive director.
The work culture was pleasant, although it's not conducive for introverted types who'd struggle with sharing office space with multiple people.
I hold high regard for this company as well as my experiences and growth, while there.
Mid-sized company that feels more like a family than a job.
Executive Assistant (Former Employee) – Philadelphia, PA – August 11, 2013
Center for Literacy (CFL) is an excellent pace to work. As The Executive Assistant/Facilities Coordinator there was nothing typical about my day except to expect anything to happen. Being there provided a place to grow and use my existing talents as well as learn and improve upon new ones. Because the company size is smaller than others afforded me the opportunity to become close to co-workers from all departments which further reinforced the cordiality between staff members. Being able to work closely with people you actually enjoy working with is one of the best features about CFL. The most difficult part of the job is leaving at 5:00 because there is always one more thing to do in a day.
Cordial, friendly and helpful staff. Enormous learning potential.
Smaller staff size leaves less people to handle more tasks.

ASE Math Instructor (Former Employee) – Philadelphia, PA – July 15, 2013
Center for Literacy has a tremendous ability to impact the environment around it. The individuals employed there are hard working and dedicated; and the learners that attend classes are truly inspirational. Often they overcome tremendous circumstance and view their education with the highest regard. I believe they taught me an important lesson about the power of voice. Every individual, regardless of their educational experience has a powerful voice and a strong set of beliefs. The work done at Center for Literacy helps to give them the tools in order to express that voice. I believe that the learners there will now have an opportunity to positively impact the world around them. This gift should never be underestimated. The job was not always easy and it required a lot of ingenuity in order to make the lessons accesible, but it was always rewarding. I truly want to work in a field where I can continue to make the difference for the community around me.
This is a great place to work. When you see goals reached by the learners in obtaining their GED or entry into post-secondary education is pricesless.

Case Manager/Program Manager (Former Employee) – Philadelphia, PA – April 11, 2012
My day with this agency was great! It started with returning calls from voice mails left after work hours, meeting with staff in the mornings to discuss details about clients prior to them arriving for their daily classes,and completing daily case notes after meeting with clients. Also, I provided clients with referrals, and assisted in directing them to resources throughout the city that met their needs.
