Strategic Plan Survey for Unit & Council Leadership/Membership

Advocacy is speaking up for yourself and others, and the act of mobilizing individuals. In PTA, we speak out and act on behalf of children and youth.

“Advocacy is at the heart of PTA’s mission and vision. Taking action provides both parents and PTA leaders with the resources to become more involved with their community at home and their community across the nation.”
