By establishing committees on education, parent involvement, community concerns, and health, PTAs are well equipped to address issues of concern to their community. Issues like parent involvement, violence, and drug use are best handled at the local level by the parents/guardians, students, and teachers who face these challenges every day.

PTA activities and programs, including the Reflections Program, Founders Day, graduation, and community and wellness fairs, are an excellent introduction to the work of the PTA to improve homes, schools, and communities. PTAs can use these opportunities to increase their exposure and support beyond the base of traditional membership.
