Jewish Literacy Coalition
The Jewish Coalition for Literacy (JCL) recruits and trains volunteers to become reading tutors in the San Francisco Bay Area's under-resourced PUBLIC elementary schools. Tutors are matched with a K-3 grade student, and the pair spends the semester or school 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. The ability to read is a vital tool to participating in our economic mainstream.
JCL is a project of the Jewish Community Relations Council and the Jewish Federation, managed by JCRC. To learn more and register for a training session, go to www.jclread.org or contact Judy Pam-Bycel at 650.847.1718.
The PJCC partners with Kaiser Permanente on health and nutrition classes throughout the year as well as providng health screenings, workshops and lectues at PJCC community events.
