Welcome to our website! We believe that every individual deserves to maximize his or her fullest potential. There is no equal opportunity for success in school or the workplace without literacy skills. Reading makes us smarter and enhances our self-confidence.



Our mission is to end illiteracy by providing effective, ONE-ON-ONE literacy instruction to any person who wants to learn to read. Newly acquired literacy skills enable people to be better parents, better students, better workers and better citizens.



JCF, through its strong network of tutors, staff, volunteers, donors & partners, is here to promote and build a literate society. We aspire to turn our passion to eliminate illiteracy into action so that our communities will be stronger & self-sustaining because they are literate.
