Can You Read This? That Means You Can Help a Child Who Can't

Volunteer with Jewish Coalition for Literacy

“Our world is not working the way it was meant to. Our task and our privilege is to help repair it.” --Leonard Fein, JCL founder

Share the wonder of the written word, the magic of books and the excitement of reading with a child. Join the Jewish Coalition for Literacy (JCL) as a volunteer reading tutor in a local public school and make a difference in a child’s life. In just one hour a week you can participate in a rewarding tikkun olam project, and help a student learn to love reading. JCL tutors are matched with a K-3 grade student, and spend the semester or school year developing a strong relationship while building literacy skills. JCL welcomes all members of the community to participate in the lives of at-risk children, providing them with the confidence and strategies that will enable them to become successful readers.
