Legacy of Leadership

From our humble beginnings in 1909, Texas PTA has grown into the state’s largest child advocacy association with over 500,000 members. Our success has been driven by the grassroots leadership of concerned parents, educators, and community members who are dedicated to making every child’s potential a reality. Texas PTA is proud to offer Emerging Leaders Academy (ELA) to help ensure a new generation of dedicated leaders who are working to support student success!

About ELA

PTA’s commitment to engage families and communities as powerful advocates for children reaches across all cultural and socioeconomic boundaries. The Emerging Leaders Academy is an opportunity to identify and support dedicated volunteers from diverse backgrounds, while equipping them with skills to become effective, successful leaders within PTA and throughout their communities. This series of four, one-day sessions will provide participants with proven strategies in outreach, communication, advocacy, and family engagement.

Who Is an Emerging Leader?

Whether it’s the PTA volunteer who organizes the multicultural night at your campus or a co-worker who organizes a reading program at the local library, leaders can be found in every corner of our communities. ELA seeks to support a diverse group of volunteers who are committed to creating successful schools through these fundamental characteristics:
