Men make a difference

It’s a guy thing! Dads, stepdads, grandfathers and male caregivers all play a big role in our kids’ future success.

Men have been a part of the PTA from our beginning a century ago, and men must continue to be involved in the next century and beyond if our kids – and our future – will truly be successful.

Contact your local PTA to find out more about joining and getting involved. And find out more about how PTA is reaching out to men throughout the country.
