The JCY-Westchester Community Partners’ mission is to enhance the educational experience of children in Westchester County through effective learning initiatives and the engagement of volunteer mentors
JCY Westchester Community Partners is a division of Familly Service Society of Yonkers (FSSY).
Our literacy programs are based on the strong evidence that mentoring improves literacy. These intergenerational programs utilize the skills and life knowledge of our adult and student volunteers by putting it into service to help the children with the most need. Whether through mentors bringing their love of reading, experiences, and compassion to a struggling child, or supporting and educating the parents on the importance of education, our goals are always to break down barriers, improve our children's future, and enrich the lives of thousands in our community.
Our programs include SMART, Open Book, Holocaust Remembrance Program, Summer Reading Buddies, Reading Buddies After School, After School Programs and Intro2America.
