Urban Family Engagement Network
The National PTA Urban Family Engagement Network increases the number of families in urban areas who understand specific ways to collaborate with schools to support their children’s education. Families learn how to navigate the local school systems and effectively advocate for better educational outcomes for all children.
Local PTA Urban Family Engagement Network teams address the barriers and issues that prevent urban parents and families from being actively involved through exposure to collaborative community partners and by providing relevant materials and leadership classes.
Urban Family Engagement Network provides an opportunity for parents, caregivers, administrators, policy makers, and community stakeholders at all levels to work together to ensure urban students reach their fullest potential.
