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 grade student or Mentoring a 4th or 5th grader, your investment in the life of one child can positively change the trajectory of his or her life and the community as a whole.
