Mentor Information

Torrance Council of PTAS strives to make sure our units have all the support that they need to be successful.

Our Mentor Program is one way we provide that support.

Each PTA in our Council has a mentor who is available to help you.  Find your mentor on the list below:

Mentor Guidelines 


  1. Introduce yourself at an executive board meeting and reach out to your mentee via email.

  2. Establish what the best line of communication is and encourage an open line of communication.

  3. Maintain communication with your mentee without being overbearing.

  4. Research the unit’s by-laws, determine the dates of all future board and association meetings and confirm with your mentee the time and location of the meetings.  Explain you will be attending so you are able to assist them if needed and provide support.

  5. Good mentorship is based on a trusting relationship.

  6. Mentors are encouraged to join the units you will be providing leadership for.  If this creates a financial burden for you, please contact the Council President.
