Help Students "Get Ahead of the Game"
with
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

What's Involved?
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

Why Volunteer?
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     

How to Volunteer 
To register as a volunteer and find more information about locations, dates, and times for the Graduation Game Plan, go to www.graduationgameplan.org/mentor.
