NJPTA’s goal is to provide new, innovative and effective events and programs to support local PTAs and councils across the state and help them develop strategies key to their success. Programs and events help members become knowledgeable and skilled volunteers who are able to serve their local PTAs and councils more effectively.

​Another way the association supports local organizations is through an awards and recognition program that celebrates the work PTAs do to make a difference in their communities.

The purpose is to create a culture of appreciation by encouraging and recognizing individuals, local PTAs, and councils for their accomplishments in promoting the well-being and education of children in the state of New Jersey.
