    Volunteers in Public Schools (VIPS) support the district’s main goal: to positively impact student achievement. By serving as a mentor, tutor, chaperone, and role model you are supporting HISD students, parents, and the future generations of the Houston community. Your work has special significance for our school communities and can be life-changing for our students.

After School Meals
