Graduation Game Plan
The Mayor's Office of Education Initiatives and the Houston Public Library are partnering with the Graduation Game Plan mentor program. This free program connects students to resources that help prepare them to achieve their academic and career goals. Mentors meet with a small group of students for an hour and a half a week for four consecutive weeks. The Spring 2014 program will begin this March 24, 2014 and lasts until April 17, 2014.
Students who participate will receive guidance and support to graduate high school, prepare for life after high school, acquire workforce skills and manage their time effectively. Working with mentors and the resources made available through the program, students create short-term and long-term education and career goals. To participate in the Graduation Game Plan mentor program, sign up at one of the libraries listed below:
