By establishing programs focused on education, including a full curriculum including the arts, family engagement, community concerns, and health, PTAs are able to address issues of concern to their community. Issues like family engagement, violence, and drug use are best handled at the local level by the parents/guardians, students, teachers and administrators working together who face these challenges every day.

PTA activities and programs, including the Reflections Program, Founders Day Celebrations, graduation activities, community and wellness fairs, and other locally developed programs 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 students and children.
