Junior Literacy Leaders

A perfect opportunity for high school age teens 9th grade and older to be involved in a summer internship where they can really make a difference in the lives of under-privileged children. JLL’s assist our Literacy Leaders (college-age teachers) in the classrooms as well as with the overall program, helping with reading time, assisting with afternoon camp-like activities, etc. This is an opportunity for our youth to see their actions are truly the work of Tikkun Olam that comes deeply from within one’s Jewish soul. They will have the capacity to change lives for the better – forever! Spaces are limited. Application deadline is March 29, 2019.

Junior Literacy Leaders (JLL’s) devote a portion of their summer to inspiring scholars to love reading. We are currently recruiting JLL’s for summer 2019! If you are:

  • energetic
  • empathetic
  • patient
  • willing to learn
  • excited by teaching
  • starting 10th grade or higher by fall 2019
  • able to commit at least two weeks (out of 6) of uninterrupted volunteering, 5 days a week, 8 am to 3 pm

The JLL program is part of the L.A. Jewish Teen Initiative, co-funded by the Jewish Federation of Greater Los Angeles and the Jim Joseph Foundation with seed funding provided by the Jewish Community Foundation of Los Angeles. Program partners include UpStart, Etzah, an Initiative of the AJU Graduate Center for Education, and BJE Impact.

You are what we’re looking for.
