Book Brigade


The Books Between Kids Book Brigade is a team made up of volunteer leaders who are committed to the mission and vision of Books Between Kids. They play a foundational role within the organization by helping to lead and facilitate volunteer activities and to promote the mission of Books Between Kids within the community.

If you are a volunteer who feels passionately about our mission here at Books Between Kids, we would love to have you as one of our Book Brigaders. It is a great opportunity to get more involved in our mission and to become a leader in our effort to fight illiteracy in Houston by ensuring that every child is a book owner!

Book Brigaders must be at least 16 years old, and have volunteered at least once at Books Between Kids.Book Brigaders should be somewhat familiar with the sorting process at the warehouse and have strong leadership skills. Before beginning, each new Brigade member will attend a brief orientation session at the warehouse (occurs every second Saturday morning) and should be able to commit to serving as at least two Book Brigade shifts a semester (or 4 times a school year).

HI Latonia,
Thanks for your email. Woodson was a partner school in 2017 and 2018 but did not reapply in 2019. Your principal will receive an email from us this fall or early January with an invitation to apply for Spring 2020. They submit the application and selected schools are notified in March 2020. You can contact our program coordinator Ashley at if you have any questions. Thank you! - The BBK Team
