About Arizona PTA

Arizona PTA was established in 1906 by Mrs. Emery Keyes and is one of the oldest State PTA Congresses in National PTA’s history. We are an active, all-volunteer board which supports and provides the training, resource development, mentorship, and guidance to the local school PTAs around Arizona. We advocate at the Arizona State Legislature in the areas of children’s health and safety, public education, and family engagement.

“To make every child’s potential a reality by engaging and empowering families and communities to advocate for children.”

 PTA Vision:

“Making every child’s potential a reality.” What the future will look like if PTA accomplishes it mission.
