Volunteer Details
GBJCL is working with Schools to determine the the safest and most effective way to conduct tutoring in the coming school year.  Decisions around how tutoring will be conducted (virtually or in person) may vary between different schools.  Tutors will be subject to individual school rules around vaccination status.
