Become a reading tutor by volunteering for one hour each week. Bay Area children in grades K-5 need your help to reach their full potential.

Inspired by Jewish values of social justice, JCL mobilizes volunteer reading tutors from all backgrounds and supports parents and child- and family-serving organizations to help emerging and struggling readers. Many are English Learners.

Sign up for a training session at JCL provides initial training, continuing education and customized support from literacy experts. A caring presence and weekly commitment can make all the difference for children striving to catch up from years of pandemic-related learning loss.

Staff match volunteers with one or more students at public schools, after-school programs, and nonprofits in San Francisco, Marin, the East Bay and the Peninsula.
