Share the love of reading with a child
On Sept. 20, 2016 learn about volunteering as a reading partner with JCL
“In the lives of the children we serve, having an adult read to them, discuss with them, and solicit their opinions is something which may happen only rarely,” says Beth Kaufman, chair of Jewish Coalition for Literacy (JCL).
JCL’s reading partners share the pleasures of reading; giving public elementary school students needed one-on-one attention. For just one hour a week, the volunteer reads and talks with a student. Volunteers help engage students with words, enriching foundations for thought and imagination.
