The California State PTA is a professional, non-profit volunteer organization committed to the well being of all children. We believe every adult has a responsibility to ensure that all children develop to their full potential. We believe parents are children’s first teachers and that parent involvement is essential throughout a child’s education experience. We believe that family is the basic unit of society responsible for the support and nurturing of all responsible children and recognize that family may be defined in many ways. We believe that our responsibility includes avocation for the safety and welfare of all children and the opportunity for a quality public education.
The mission of the California State PTA is to represent our members and to empower and support them with skill in advocacy, leadership, and communication to positively impact the lives of all children.
