The first answer is also the biggest and best: to benefit your child. Of course, joining PTA benefits your child. Here's the thing, though. Joining PTA helps not only your child, but every child at your child’s school. You become part of a nationwide network of people who all come together for the same reason: to make the world a better place for children.
There are so many advantages to joining PTA. Let’s look at just a few:
There’s no better way to find out what is happening at your child’s school; PTA is a fantastic way to not only get connected, but to stay connected.
There is a network of resources and programs just for PTAs. There are tons of resources for students and parents, and PTA events and programs are fantastic ways to meet other parents, network, and discuss goals, ideas and experiences.
