Military Families


The National PTA® Military Alliance for Parents and Partners is a group of organizations that work together to provide resources to and advocate for military-connected families.

The alliance identifies and addresses the unique social and educational challenges that these families face due to issues of deployment and mobility, among others. Specifically, members of the alliance work both jointly and independently with National PTA to develop a collaborative strategy to create awareness around serving military families and provide and develop resources for military families.

The participants include:

AUSA: Association of the United States Army
