The board realized the need and was very positive and willing to assist in building the Stockton Chapter. Association of Midnight Basketball CEO Lawrence C Gray was there to support the chapter and gave some valuable input. The Stockton Chapter has written a policy and procedure for there Mentoring Program. A draft has been forwarded to the Ass. City Manager. No local program has a detailed procedure policy.
