We appreciate all HISD instructors/teachers for the interest of their students' education. Sign up today, there is limited space available.

Student Mentorship Program*

The Mentor Program is a great opportunity for area GIS professionals to work with HISD instructors and students. The program has successfully introduced students to GIS tools, area professionals that use GIS in our community. This program is a great way to provide knowledge of GIS for the next generation. Mentors are greatly needed!
