Become a Book Buddy

Change a Community! Invest in a Child!

The simple act of reading to a child once a week can make a huge impact in a child’s life.  Would you consider donating  an hour a week at Johnson Elementary as a Book Buddy? Join other Broadmoor members as we strategically invest in Johnson Elementary, a school positioned centrally in Jackson’s historic Georgetown neighborhood. By becoming a Book Buddy to a 3rd or 4th grade male student, your investment in the life of one child can positively change the trajectory of his or her life and the community as a whole. 

Book Buddy

What: Serve as a Book Buddy to a 2nd and 3rd Grade Males at Johnson Elementary.
 Adults and older students are welcome. Must have availability to meet during school hours (8:00am - 1:30pm).
 Meet with a student 25-30 minutes a week. Time is flexible. You can meet with your student any time during school hours.

Mentor: We will not continue our weekly Mentor program this year. All those interested in Mentoring their student from the previous year(s) are asked to take a couple times a semester to meet with the student to check in and encourage. Our Mentor program has grown so big that we are pulling too many of Johnson's 4th & 5th graders out of their classrooms each week.
