Readers Café' is a New RJCL Program at Swansboro

Last year at Swansboro Elementary a few RJCL volunteers tested a new program called Readers Cafe'.
It is designed to be like "Oprah's Book Club!" but reading with a small group of students during their lunch period.

We would welcome all volunteers. No teaching experience is necessary, just a sense of fun.

Top 5 Reasons to Volunteer with Richmond Jewish Coalition Literacy for Reading
-Readers Cafe' is a short commitment of 4-6 weeks.
-You will be able to eat school cafeteria food again.
-The chairs in the library are small so you will feel like a giant
-The books have great plots and some humor.
-The time you spend with the children is priceless.

The volunteers from the Richmond Jewish Coalition for Literacy (RJCL) were recently honored by the City of Richmond School Board for providing over 10 years of service to Richmond Public Schools staff and students at Swansboro Elementary School.
