The Broward County Council of PTAs/PTSAs (BCCPTA/PTSA) is a constituent association of National Parent Teacher Association (PTA®), the largest volunteer child advocacy association in the nation. As a county council, we train and assist local units.
Our National PTA's Origins
For more than 100 years, National Parent Teacher Association (National PTA®) has worked toward bettering the lives of every child in education, health and safety. Founded in 1897 as the National Congress of Mothers by Alice McLellan Birney and Phoebe Apperson Hearst, National PTA is a powerful voice for all children, a relevant resource for families and communities, and a strong advocate for public education.
Today’s PTA is a network of millions of families, students, teachers, administrators, and business and community leaders devoted to the educational success of children and the promotion of family engagement in schools.
