Jewish Coalition for Literacy (JCL) Impacts the Lives of 300 Children in New Haven Public Schools 

“Being a JCL reading partner is the most rewarding volunteer work I’ve ever done. My sessions with my students are often the highlight of my week. I love being able to pick books that capture their imagination, hoping to spark a lifelong love of books. In addition to reading, we talk, play games, and draw pictures. Many of the kids lack significant one-on-one attention, so these sessions are a wonderful opportunity to engage with them and build positive relationships,” Susan Epstein, JCL volunteer and steering committee chair, shared.

Interested volunteers are encouraged to contact Emily Kurz, JCC Group Program Manager at (203) 387-2424 ext. 306 or
