DEI Mentorship Program

PTA programs add value to a school community and increase the ability
of a school to serve its families through additional resources of time and fundraising towards needed items.

But some school communities and their families have more resources than others. We are seeking to find a solution to this disparity.

  • Mentors: Seeking experienced PTA’s that would be interested in mentoring PTA’s that may desire some guidance as well as assistance in meeting the needs of their school community.
  • Mentees: Does your PTA wish to be mentored? We know it can be tough to run a PTA and that having someone to partner with, to answer questions and to provide additional needed resources can make this all a little easier!
