The Parent-Teacher Association is an organization that facilitates parental participation at a school. As a parent you can be a volunteer, while also encouraging volunteerism within the school. How can you do this? Start a Community Outreach committee for the PTA of your child’s school.
VOLUNTEER Hampton Roads always encourages volunteerism for the youth of our community. A wonderful way to make a lasting impact on our youth as volunteers is to serve alongside your child.
By coordinating a Community Outreach committee within the school, you can help develop a service-learning program within the school, while also encouraging the parents to be a part of the movement. Contact your PTA President today to see how you can help!
