PTA Membership

PTA’s mission is to make every child’s potential a reality by engaging and empowering families and communities to advocate for all children.

Joining The PTA

PTA is the largest volunteer organization dedicated to improving the welfare of all children and youth. Joining PTA supports endeavors to improve the education of children and the lives of families. Membership provides the opportunity for individuals to come together, combine efforts, and raise awareness on issues affecting children, youth and families.

PTA involvement helps build leadership, communication and advocacy skills. It provides members with opportunities to participate in an educational partnership with administrators and teachers. PTA members are a valuable community resource for starting and maintaining projects to benefit children and youth.
