A Huffington Post article posted last year does a fabulous job of summing up the benefits of being a PTA volunteer (in case the stories from our own PTA volunteers aren’t enough to convince you!).
“All I’m asking is for you to put away those old feelings and realize the PTA exists to benefit your children and their education. When someone posed it that way to me? Well, you already know what happened. I stepped up. Like I said, I’m not asking you to become the president like me. I’m asking you to buy a membership, attend a PTA meeting to share your thoughts and/or volunteer for one event.
“I promise you, in the eyes of your children, it will be worth it.”
