Meet Barrett Higginbotham

Intern at Springboard to Opportunities in the Northwood Village community.

 “I am responsible for the mentorship and educational support of the community’s children. I help with school assignments, plan engaging, community building events, and I am currently implementing two supplemental nutrition programs that provide food for the children.”

Since joining the Springboard team, I have come to understand the importance of community engagement. Working in service of underrepresented groups and children has shown me what meaningful work is and it has been rewarding far beyond my expectations.”
