Parent Teacher Student Community Association Resources

Are you a middle or high school PTSA? Check out these resources below that are specifically curated for you!

PTSCAs provide youth members with the opportunity to make a difference by developing leadership skills, learning about the legislative process, increasing their self-esteem, and contributing to the school and community. In turn, adult PTSCA members gain a new perspective for program development and youth leadership development and acquire a better understanding of the youth of today.

Learn more about the process and enroll at PTA.org/Excellence.
