The Mission of the Parent Teacher Association®

A powerful voice for all children,
A relevant resource for families and communities, and
A strong advocate for the education and well-being of every child.
Ways for You to Get Involved
Join your local unit. Join the PTA near you. It may be a PTA affiliated with a particular school, or community PTA, that covers several schools. Use the Find a PTA feature to locate PTAs in your area, then contact the school or PTA president, and join. For more information, contact your State PTA.
Join National PTA. If you are concerned with advocacy, or want more materials than a local PTA membership provides, consider joining the national PTA unit. You’ll get a print version of the official PTA magazine, as well as all the same great benefits of local membership. Join as a national member now by applying online or by mail.
