Through partnerships with synagogues, Jewish community organizations, day schools, and businesses, the Greater Boston Jewish Coalition for Literacy (GBJCL) engages volunteers in school-based one-to-one reading tutoring, book drives, and advocacy efforts in high-needs schools.

Participants include empty-nesters, working professionals, at-home parents, retirees, and teens. Volunteers come from all backgrounds and do not need professional training in education nor are they required to be Jewish.

GBJCL is a community engagement effort of the Jewish Community Relations Council of Greater Boston (JCRC). JCRC is a coalition of organizations and individuals that represents and advances the values, interests, and priorities of the organized Jewish community in Greater Boston through its network of agencies, programs, and partnerships.
