WATCH D.O.G.S. (Dads of Great Students)
WATCH D.O.G.S. (Dads Of Great Students) is a safe school initiative of the National Center for Fathering that involves fathers and father figures to help create a safe and secure learning environment in our nation’s schools.
Who are Watch D.O.G.S.? Fathers, grandfathers, step-fathers, uncles, and other father figures who volunteer to serve no more than once per semester (2 quarters) in a variety of school activities as assigned by the school principal or classroom teacher.
The WATCH D.O.G.S. Program strives to:
- Raise the banner of positive fathering through the forum of schools.
- Awaken fathers to the values and benefits of committed fathering.
- Change the culture by which every child has a father or father figure to connect with in a positive way at school.
- Help every school in America be positively impacted by the committed involvement of fathers and father figures in their children’s life.
