National Parent Teacher Association (National PTA)
National PTA® comprises millions of families, students, teachers, administrators, and business and community leaders devoted to the educational success of children and the promotion of parent involvement in schools. PTA is a registered 501(c) (3) nonprofit association that prides itself on being a powerful voice for all children, a relevant resource for families and communities, and a strong advocate for public education. Membership in PTA is open to anyone who wants to be involved and make a difference for the education, health, and welfare of children and youth.
PTA organizes hard-working, dedicated volunteers to improve family-school communications and work with schools to ensure that children succeed. Local units have access to ready-made, easy-to-use programs with proven success records: PTA Healthy Lifestyles, PTA Take Your Family to School Week, PTA Teacher Appreciation Week, the PTA Reflections arts recognition program, Family-School Partnerships, and more. National PTA resources such as PTA.org, The Official PTA Kit, the PTA Parent e-newsletter, and Our Children magazine provide additional parenting and family involvement tools.See more
