As the largest volunteer child advocacy association in the nation, Parent Teacher Association (PTA) reminds our country of its obligations to children and provides parents and families with a powerful voice to speak on behalf of every child while providing the best tools for parents to help their children be successful students.
PTA does not act alone. Working in cooperation with many national education, health, safety, and child advocacy groups and federal agencies, the national PTA association collaborates on projects that benefit children and that bring valuable resources to its members.
Florida PTA serves as a link between the national organization and membership within the state. A person who joins a local Parent Teacher Association automatically becomes a member of National PTA and Florida PTA.
Florida PTA represents over 300,000 members at the state legislature, state board of education and other education and child focused organizations; provides support and training for local PTAs through workshops and publications; coordinates special projects to promote the welfare of Florida’s children and youth, and much more.
Florida PTA is a registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization 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 is concerned with the education, health and welfare of children and youth.
