Simmons Elementary is seeking adult role models to mentor students facing adversity through the Bulldog Buddies program.

From helping a student read to shooting hoops in the gym, you have the opportunity to make a real difference!

Adult volunteers will be matched with a Simmons student to build a positive relationship. The Bulldog Buddies will meet for 30 minutes once a week during the school day (10:00-2:30pm) at Simmons Elementary School (830 Tyrone Pike).

Please contact Raf Gonzalez at raf@journeyky.church with any questions! Thank you for supporting our Simmons Students!

“From the moment I was given the honor of being named principal of Simmons, the community outpouring of support has been overwhelming. In today’s world, it is so refreshing that organizations such as Journey Church are willing to support, love, and appreciate the students and staff at Simmons. It truly takes a village to ensure the best for the next generation and the ministry and outreach programs at Journey have already had an impact on our students. In fact, in our initial meeting, a need arose for assistance and Raf immediately jumped in to assist and in turn made a connection with a child that may have otherwise never been made. Together, we were able to turn what could have been a difficult situation into a truly moving and spiritual one. I am humbled and truly grateful for the ministry of Journey.”
