We Need You!

All it takes is one volunteer and before you know it, there will be a group of dedicated volunteers doing what PTA does best; providing resources and programs to all families.

PTA brings the voice of millions, not just the parents from one school. Many of the benefits our children receive today such as kindergarten, school lunches and a juvenile justice system, are the result of PTA's work over its more than 117-year history.

The strength of the PTA is not limited to our massive number of members, but the fact we speak with one voice for every child.   If you desire to be a part of a mission that is committed to honoring the past and working passionately to help provide for the future of those to come, contribute your time, monies and resources to Mecklenburg PTA Council. Please contact us at president@meckpta.org to join your voice with ours to make every child’s potential a reality.

At Large Board Members, Communication Chair and committee members positons are open if you have an interest interviewing please contact president@meckpta.org or woshea@carolina.rr.com.
