Dads Organized & Engaged

The Dads Organized & Engaged (DOE) initiatives are designed to build peer relationships that empower fathers to become more visible, valuable, and a vocal participant of their child’s educational team. DOE programming is done through tactile training, leadership development, peer mentoring, and engagement opportunities that promote effective advocacy skills. PEATC’s fatherhood initiatives increase parent engagement of dads in diverse communities and educational settings.
