Mt. Airy Learning Tree (MALT)
Neighbors Teaching Neighbors
The mission of the Mt. Airy Learning Tree (MALT) is to strengthen and enrich the diverse community of Northwest Philadelphia by providing opportunities for individuals to come together in educational and recreational activities.
MALT was founded in 1980 and celebrates the diversity of Northwest Philadelphia, bringing together neighbors to share a wide variety of ideas, information and skills in informal learning environments. Courses that encourage exchange among people of different ages; that reflect the backgrounds, experiences and talents of our community, and that focus on issues of concern to the community are of particular interest.
MALT now offers about 300 courses three times a year, in the fall, winter and spring. Topics range literally from A (Adventures in Sewing) to Z (Zumba). Our classrooms are in local churches, schools, businesses and homes or outdoors in the Wissahickon and at local points of interest.
