When you think of the schools you know and love, you’re thinking PTA! North Carolina PTA is the state's oldest and largest volunteer organization advocating for the success and health of all children in North Carolina, and we’re affiliated with National PTA. PTAs started the first hot school lunch programs in the country, fought for school meals, advocated for universal kindergarten, and battled against child labor in factories, mills, and fields.
We are an association of 960 local units, 11 countywide councils, and 130,000 members in 67 counties across North Carolina. We continue to fight for every child’s potential to be a reality, to advocate for full funding of our public schools and strengthening school meal standards, and providing programs and supports that impact more than one million children.
When you support NCPTA, you’re saying you believe in the potential of every child and you believe in the ability of parents and communities to make a difference!
