Last updated on June 25, 2013

JCL is a unique volunteer organization, where the JCL reading partner chooses the day, time and school they wish to meet with their student. JCL, a nondenominational organization, whose volunteers share the pleasures of reading and conversation, one to one with a student. JCL: Helping children to succeed: repairing the world – one child at a time.

JCL recruits, trains, places and supports volunteer reading partners in local schools to read one-to-one with children who benefit from the support of a caring adult, sharing the pleasures of reading and conversation. No experience needed.

JCL 160 plus reading partners work in seven New Haven public schools, working one to one with a student that can benefit from such interaction. Columbus Family Academy, Brennan Rogers, Nathan Hale. Edgewood, Barnard, Mauro-Sheriden and Davis Street, JCL is the proud recipient of the 2007 Superintendent’s Award, granted by the New Haven Network for Public Education.
