Through its Every Child in Focus initiative, National PTA is hosting a series of virtual events for PTA leaders, educators, and family and community engagement professionals to educate about effective family engagement and community outreach strategies.


Each event will feature guest speakers with real-world insights to help parent leaders, educators, and community organizations understand perspectives of families, overcome barriers to family engagement, and deepen relationships in ways that will yield new parent leaders and advocates for children.
