Cozy Reading Club
An afterschool program that provides 4th grade students, who are currently reading below grade level, with the reading skills, habits, confidence, and book access they need to succeed.
Parent workshops ensure that the work of building literacy doesn't stop in the classroom, but is maintained through out all aspects of the students life.
Our teacher workshops share the latest research and teaching techniques that J3 has found to be effective in the fight for proficient readers.
Community partnerships create opportunities for J3 to broaden its impact across Los Angeles

What people are saying...
“I felt a bit nervous in the beginning but now I’m getting braver. I have more courage.”
“You’ll see a kid whose technically a struggling reader grab, like, seven books and say, ‘can I take these home?’, and they have this twinkle in their eye and they’re so into it and so excited.”
“He actually enjoys reading. The first time he read in the car I almost cried of happiness. The first time he begged for five more minutes to read, I actually did cry.”
