PTA is an amazing group of parents, teachers, administrators and community members – all with the common goal to make every child’s potential a reality. There are many other groups out there focused on raising money, but PTA is about more than dollars. PTA is committed to fostering family engagement and student success on every one of our campuses.
There is much work to be done, but know you are not alone. One of the greatest benefits of being a PTA Leader is access to a wide range of support and a direct connection with other volunteer Leaders to help you along the way. You are encouraged to take full advantage of Georgia PTA’s online resources and reach out to us if you need more information. We’re here to help you succeed!
Thank you for supporting the students in your community through PTA Leadership!
