MENTORS NEEDED!
(Are you a Student? skip to the bottom!)
Share Your Experience with Students!

The Graduation Game Plan gives caring Houstonians the opportunity to mentor students and help them complete a plan for going to college and starting a career. We bring mentors and students together at Houston Public Library branches around Houston, and provide them all of the activities and resources to start planning.
What's Involved?
By working with small groups of students after school or on weekends for between 3-7 hours, you will help them:

  • Figure out their plan for graduating high school
  • Prepare them for college and a career
  • Know what workforce skills employers are looking for
  • Build a network of people who will support their goals

Why Volunteer? 
By volunteering with the Graduation Game Plan, you can:

  • Be a role model for students, and provide after-school support
  • Pass on skills you have learned about life after school

Register now to volunteer at a library near you. Go to our website for more information about the Graduation Game Plan.

FOR STUDENTS!
Do You Have the College Dream? We Have the Plan! ☺

Students are invited to work with a Graduation Game Plan mentor at one of many Houston Public Library branches in order to:

  • Figure out your plan for graduating high school
  • Prepare yourself for college and your future career
  • Know what workforce skills employers are looking for

Ready to Build your own Game Plan?
Go to www.GraduationGamePlan.org for more information about locations, dates, and times for the Graduation Game Plan. You can also get a head start on your own game plan, and find additional college and career planning resources.

Students who successfully participate and attend all program sessions of the Graduation Game Plan at individual library branches will be entered into a raffle for gift cards generously donated by local businesses!
