National Links

The National Parent Teacher Association is your gateway to navigating the ever-expanding world of information on career planning and getting your child or student on the path to an exciting and rewarding career.  We’re proud to have the United States Department of Labor (DOL) at our side in this effort.  We encourage you to explore the valuable resources for employment, training, and career information available through the publicly funded Workforce Investment System.  That system includes a “one stop approach” to service delivery—making sure you can find in one place the information you need on all the services in your area—as well as the active participation by the private sector and better services for youth.  Whether your child or student’s goal is to attend college or go immediately into the workforce, PTA Goes to Work can help you make sense of the often overwhelming amount of information that is available regarding career planning and job training.
