The Pleasant Hill Education Initiative, as proposed by Mayor Harris, will establish a community wide volunteer effort to enhance the quality of education for students in Pleasant Hill.
The Initiative would include such programs as mentoring and tutoring students, volunteering in schools, career counseling and job shadowing, community teaching labs, and afterschool enrichment programs. Mayor Harris is seeking to form a Steering Committee to plan and oversee The Initiative. This committee would be comprised of representatives from various organizations including City Commissions, the Recreation & Park District, MDUSD, Pleasant Hill Library, Foundation for PH Education, Chamber of Commerce, Construction Trades, and the PH Community Foundation.
Those interested in being on the Steering Committee or wishing to be a volunteer in the program can sign up online at www.pleasant-hill.net/phei. For more information on The Initiative, contact Martin Nelis at firstname.lastname@example.org.
