event_photo-573be361a30dbYears of research have demonstrated the detrimental impact the absence of a father or father figure have on the future of our children.  The Illinois PTA continues to work with the National PTA and other like-minded organizations to ensure that our children’s future are positively affected through the Father Engagement Initiative.  One of our primary objectives is to create and provide resources to all PTAs in Illinois that will allow them to make this Initiative a reality.

In partnership with the Illinois Fatherhood Initiative, I will be participating in the Dad’s Honor Ride to raise awareness of our Father Engagement Initiative by raising the funds necessary to provide resources to PTAs.  Here’s how you can help



Thank you in advance for your support,
