Tutor Reading with child

A program of NCJW Atlanta, the Atlanta Jewish Coalition for Literacy (AJCL) recruits, trains, places, and supports volunteer reading tutors in Title 1 public elementary schools throughout metro Atlanta. Tutors work one-on-one with students for the entire school year. Tutors choose which day of the week, time of the day, specific school and grade level they prefer. School liaisons select children who are below grade level in reading skills and would most benefit from the individualized attention and support received by a tutor. The tutoring session is limited to thirty minutes per student each week.

In just one half hour per week, reading tutors have a significant positive impact on their students as they talk and read together. Their teachers report improvement in test scores, increase in overall confidence, heightened interest in reading for fun, and greater class participation. Children learn the pleasures of reading from caring adults and volunteers experience the thrill of helping students who love to learn.
