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
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

HPD to Homeowners: Help Us, Help You Protect Your Home
The Houston Police Department wants to help you make your home as safe as possible and a nuisance to would-be burglars.
For example, many intruders enter through weak doors. Having strong doors and door frames, including garage doors, is essential to your security. Steel doors and frames provide enhanced security because they are harder to destroy. If you have hollow-core doors, it is recommended you replace them with a sturdier type. There are wooden doors being manufactured to withstand a tremendous amount of pressure from would-be burglars.
Secure windows and sliding glass doors can be secured with a locking device placed along the track. A broomstick or a wooden rod may work just as well if placed on the track between the door frame and the door. Glass sliding doors are usually secluded from public view and special care must be taken to secure them. Bolt locks can be installed to help prevent the door from being opened or removed from its track.

Houston's Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) program, part of the Mayor's Office of Public Safety and Homeland Security, "trains ordinary citizens in how to help themselves and their neighbors in the event of disasters. In addition, because of the training that CERT volunteers undergo, they are often called upon to assist in organizing disaster response as well." (from the Houston CERT Program web site)
