Did you know? NYS PTA is the oldest and largest volunteer organization supporting children, proudly serving New York’s children and families for more than 120 years.

Check out these top reasons Why PTA Makes A Difference!

Each local PTA unit is an independent association that collaborates with its schools, planning its programs and activities to meet the needs of the children and youth in its community.

PTA is a 501(c)(3) organization – a not-for-profit organization operated exclusively for educational and charitable purposes. As FYI – PTA is nonsectarian, noncommercial and nonpartisan.

NYS PTA members are a part of both the state and National PTA  and can attend  conventions, workshops and leadership training opportunities. Structure is important, as each unit, council and region PTA has bylaws, elected officers and committees

Experienced PTA leaders who volunteer at the region, state and National PTA levels provide support, encouragement, advice, programs, educational materials, publications, conferences, workshops and leadership training.

PTA members are advocates for the well-being of children and youth, and unit activities should always maintain this focus.
