The National PTA was created to meet a profound challenge: to better the lives of children. PTA has flourished because it has never lost sight of its goal to improve the lives of children across our great nation. 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 membership is open to anyone who believes in the Mission and Purposes of National PTA. Individual members may belong to more than one local PTA unit. Every person who joins a local PTA unit automatically becomes a member of both the state and National PTAs. Click Here to Become a Member!

PTA is founded on advocacy. The PTA lobbies for education and children in Sacramento and Washington each and everyday. PTA has been instrumental in the passage of important laws and guidelines that we sometimes take for granted today, such as:
Enforcing child labor laws
Building Kindergarten into the public school system
Supplying federally funded hot-lunches—that now feed more than 26 million children a day.
Supporting school bus safety regulations
Creating the content-rating system for television programs—yes, PTA supported the creation of that ratings indicator you now see in the upper-left corner of your TV screen.
The Power of PTA
PTA prides itself on being a powerful voice for children’s education and health issues by supporting and speaking on behalf of children and youth before governmental bodies and other organizations to secure adequate laws for the care and protection of children and youth. With more than one million members, California State PTA is the largest volunteer organization in the state dedicated to improving the well being of all children and youth. supports local, state and national efforts to improve the education of children and the lives of families.
