Looking for new BookMates

BookMates Literacy Program Looking Volunteers to Read Weekly with At-Risk Students in the Fall!

The JCRC of SNJ's BookMates interfaith literacy program provides services to elementary schools that receive title-one funding throughout Southern New Jersey and is looking for dedicated volunteers to read weekly to their at-risk students!  Sign up to be a BookMate volunteer.

The mission of "BookMates" is to provide nurturing, one-to-one literacy experiences for at-risk children, encouraging them to love reading and providing them with a foundation to succeed in school and in life. Learning is a primary pathway to a better life for individuals and families, and our communities as a whole!

The rewards of helping children are immeasurable and we encourage you to learn more about becoming a "BookMate" for a child in our community! For more information about becoming a volunteer to help BookMates fulfill its mission, please email our BookMates Director, Rhonda Shevrin, at: bookmates@jfedsnj.org.
