​JCL - Jewish Coalition for Literacy - is a nondenominational volunteer program with 170 dedicated volunteers reading to 350 students in New Haven schools. 

JCL takes just one hour a week and no teaching experience is required - just a kind heart and a love of reading. JCL volunteers feel extremely rewarded by the relationship they build with the students and improving their chance of academic success. 

JCL Orientation and Informational Session for new and returning volunteers will take place at the Beckerman Lender Jewish Community Building (JCC of Greater New Haven) with Roy Araujo, Principal at Christopher Columbus Family Academy (CCFA) of Fair Haven as the keynote speaker. Refreshments will be served. 

Please note that all events offered by the Jewish Federation, Foundation, and JCC of Greater New Haven may include photography.
