Local and Council PTA Support

Washington State PTA provides support to over 4,000 volunteer leaders of over 700 local and council PTAs across Washington state. We also develop and provide their nonprofit leaders training in nonprofit management, leadership, and the other skills they need to run their PTAs successfully. Complementing the work of the National PTA, we prepare and publish resources, including handbooks, templates, and forms to assist them in their volunteer work.
