2nd grade, low-income Lozano students
fostering literacy and love of reading

The 2018-2019 school year program has come to an end! Stay tuned for volunteer recruitment beginning for next year's program in July or August.

  • Volunteers are paired up one-on-one with one student for the entire school year, developing a strong bond
  • Reading is approximately 45 minutes, with optional free transportation provided from JUF to our partner school
  • No previous experience required
  • We are always looking for substitute volunteers to fill in for weekly volunteers when they are absent
  • Please note that per CPS, all volunteers and subs must be fingerprinted and fill out a background check and get fingerprinted.   

If you would like to stay informed about program information for the 2019-2020 school year, please contact AliBoorstein@juf.org.
