Inspired by Jewish values of social justice, the Jewish Coalition for Literacy (JCL) fosters literacy among underserved students in public schools by engaging the community as volunteer tutors
The Jewish Coalition for Literacy (JCL) recruits and trains volunteers to become reading tutors in a Peninsula under-resourced elementary school. Tutors are matched with a K-3 grade student, and the pair spends the year developing a strong relationship while building literacy skills. JCL engages our volunteers in tikkun olam, healing the world, and welcomes all members of the community—students, seniors, parents and professionals—to participate in the lives of at-risk children, providing the confidence and the strategies that will enable them to become successful readers.
Become a reading tutor by spending at least one hour once a week either reading with children or volunteering at an after-school program at a local elementary school selected for PJCC volunteers. Daytime, afternoon, and early evening hours are available. In most cases, volunteers are paired with students for one-on-one tutoring. If transportation is required by the tutor to the school, the PJCC will make that available.
