When people sign up to volunteer with us, they are placed with one of our 50+ partner nonprofit tutoring or mentoring organizations or schools based on when they are available to help (mornings, afternoons, evenings any day of the week), what neighborhoods are convenient for them (or virtual); and whether they want to work with elementary, middle or high school students.

Jewish Community Relations Council of Greater Washington (JCRC)

JCRC is the central community relations agency of the organized Jewish community in our nation's capital. The JCRC endeavors to foster a society based on freedom, justice and democratic pluralism for it is such a society which affords Jews, and all people, the conditions most conducive to individual security, equal opportunity and creative group survival. JCRC accomplishes this goal through their work in four pillars: government relations, Israel advocacy, inter-group relations, and social justice.

On behalf of over 100 constituent agencies, organizations and synagogues in the District of Columbia, Northern Virginia and suburban Maryland, the JCRC determines a consensus on the broad range of public policy issues central to Jewish conscience and concern and then promulgates those concerns to Washington area legislators and civic, public opinion, media and interfaith leaders. The JCRC also coordinates community programs of information and advocacy on priority domestic and international issues. Visit our website.

JCRC Student to Student Program

Student to Student program is a bigotry-reduction program for teens that is sponsored by the Jewish Community Relations Council (JCRC). Our participants, Jewish high school juniors and seniors, give presentations to students in the greater DC area schools as well as participating in teacher trainings throughout the region. They talk about their lives as Jewish teens--a powerful antidote to stereotyping and anti-Semitism. In addition to presentations, our teens participate in Interfaith dialogue with religious youth groups throughout the region. The students who have participated in thesel dialogues enthusiastically receive these peer-presented programs and especially enjoy the small group breakouts with facilitated questions led by teens of both faiths.
