The purpose of the Harbor Council Mentoring Program is to share our experience and knowledge with our unit Presidents and Boards so that they may have a better understanding of what the mechanics and function of the PTA is beyond their schools. The Harbor Council Mentors provide information about PTA history; The importance of getting regional training, the value of attending Sacramento Safari and PTA Conventions, along with support to the units for the Reflections Program, the College and Career Night, and the Parent Education Series.
