Inspired by Jewish values of social justice, the Jewish Coalition for Literacy (JCL) engages the community in tikkun olam by matching volunteer reading tutors with at-risk children (grades K-3) in high-poverty public elementary schools throughout the Bay Area, for 1:1 or small group reading support.

Collects thousands of high quality donated children’s books each year and distributes them to children who have few, if any, books of their own.  Organization envisions a world where all children can read and are inspired to reach their full potential.
