Help Students "Get Ahead of the Game"
The Graduation Game Plan!
The Graduation Game Plan provides students with a network of mentors through Houston Public Library branches to help them get on their "A-game" in school and in everyday life
Work with small groups of 3-5 students for 3-7 hours total (depending on location), to help them:
- Figure out their plan for graduating high school
- Map out what they want to do after graduation
- Develop the work ethic they need to succeed in life
- Build a network of people who will help them reach their goals
By volunteering with the Graduation Game Plan, you can:
- Be a role model for students and provide after-school support
- Pass on what you've learned about life after high school
